UAE Customs Information

When shipping goods to the UAE, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects or a gift to a loved one; if your shipment does not have a customs invoice attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. Uni Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to complete and attach to your shipment when you send your luggage to the UAE.

Generally, Uni Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowances are different around the world, and because Uni Baggage has no control over any decisions made, we do advise doing your own research into UAE customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Switzerland.

Shipments of personal effects being sent to the UAE for non-residents who do not hold a UAE passport, residence or employment visa should not exceed a declared value of £175/$250. Shipments exceeding this value will require a copy of the named receiver’s passport, and their residence or employment visa if they are a non-UAE passport holder.

Uni Baggage gives you the freedom to ship your personal belongings all over the world, meaning you can send almost everything you would typically find in a standard holiday suitcase. However, for security and customs reasons, there are certain items which are prohibited and cannot be carried; as is standard with most shipping companies.

Please note that import allowances, security and customs processes differ all around the world; we recommend that you do your own personal research into what may be prohibited in your destination country before booking your shipment to the UAE.

What type of packaging can be used?

When sending your belongings to the UAE with Uni Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong boxes to package your items so as they are suitable for transit.

We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable and suitable for transit.

If you are sending fragile or delicate items, we recommend using internal packaging to protect them during transit. You can use materials such as bubble wrap or newspapers.
