Moving and Customs / personal belongings
I am in the process of packing our personal belongings for the move to join my husband in Dubai.
It is quite a scary task packing things when you are unsure if they will make it into Dubai or not.
Does anyone have any experience in taking their personal belongings into Dubai and encountering problems with customs.
Some of the questions that I have are:
- Are there any taxes or duties payable on the goods we take in if they are personal possessions ie tv, dvd player, toys, bicycles, crockery etc;
- What happens if something is deemed not suitable to enter Dubai ie a game, a picture, a cd, a dvd - do they confiscate it or are you made to pay a fine
I hope there is someone out there that could share their experiences with me and hopefully put my mind at rest.
Any comments / replies would be appreciated.
