Shipping and Removals in Abu Dhabi


► Buy the Abu Dhabi Expat Guide for Kindle or PDF.



 

There is no shortage of shipping and relocation companies in Abu Dhabi. Sometimes the employer will have an in-house or preferred user who aims to make the move as smooth as possible. Relocation companies can be hired to assist with every aspect of the move, from furniture transportation to school enrolment.
 
It should be noted that the UAE has strict rules on what may and may not be brought into the country. No weapons, ammunition or narcotics will be admitted. The UAE has imposed bans on various medicines, including codeine. It is advisable to check the UAE customs website before travelling as being caught with ‘banned’ items can result in a jail term.
 
All music, books, CDs and DVDs etc. will be subject to inspection/censorship at customs. Anything considered to be against the values, tradition and morality of the UAE will be banned. This would include anything with pornographic or anti-Muslim content.

Many expats may also be surprised to learn that certain breeds of dog are banned in the UAE. Be sure to prepare accordingly if planning to ship your pet to Abu Dhabi.
