Hi there

My wife and I will be starting new jobs in Qatar in 2 months. We're currently working out what to take with us, and what to place in storage. I'm a part-time DJ and have a large vinyl record collection which I'd like to bring with me. However, I understand that there are certain restrictions on 'print materials' (which I understand to include DVDs and CDs) that can be brought into the country. I'm worried about my records (and our books, for that matter) not making it through and being confiscated. I was wondering if anyone knows if these fears are justified or groundless, and what precautions we should take if we do decide to ship these items.

All help appreciated!
