Whether you’re travelling to the UAE to study abroad, to relocate with family or for work, to enjoy a holiday or otherwise; My Baggage’s generous weight allowance and the fact you can send as many items as you like, to Dubai or any other city in UAE. Our convenient luggage shipping service allows you to bring many more possessions with you than if you were simply relying on a few checked pieces of luggage when flying. For this reason, My Baggage offers a welcomed, affordable alternative to airline baggage.

My Baggage allows you to ship a massive 66lbs per suitcase or box at fantastic low rates. You’ll also be given the option to pay extra for even heavier items, if you need to.

In addition to those on our Prohibited Items list, there are certain items that cannot be sent to the UAE including Gambling Materials (such as Playing Cards), and anything that would be considered offensive to the UAE’s Culture or Religious Beliefs.
Sending a Prohibited Item to the UAE will result in your shipment being returned to its original collection address, to which additional shipment fees will apply. In rare instances, depending on what the Prohibited Item is, the shipment may be disposed of.
There are certain items that can be sent on our service, however, they are classed as ‘Non-Compensation’ items. This means that they aren’t covered by our compensation cover.

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.

UAE - United Arab Emirates Customs Information

When shipping personal effects or gifts to the UAE - United Arab Emirates, you are legally required to complete and send a customs form. Not including a customs form can lead to your shipment being unable to leave its country of origin, potentially causing it to be returned to the sender's address and incurring return shipping fees.

When you use My Baggage, your customs form is automatically created.

Below we have outlined some important customs regulations when shipping to the UAE, and some frequently asked questions. Please review this information carefully before placing an order.

Dubai View From Above
Shipments to the UAE will be subject to customs checks and require a completed Customs Form.

My Baggage will generate customs forms that you must complete. These forms will be personalised for your shipment based on the information you provided during your order. You can access these forms in the ‘My Orders’ section of our website soon after your order has been paid for.
If your customs paperwork has been completed and submitted correctly, your shipment with My Baggage should clear customs in a timely manner, and arrive on the estimated delivery dates.

Every shipment is unique and will undergo an individual inspection by UAE customs. Therefore, clearance times may vary between shipments and are dependent on multiple factors including customs values, reason for shipping, contents of the shipment, etc.
In addition to customs forms, shipments to the UAE require some additional documentation, including a copy of the receiver’s passport image page.

To avoid potential issues, it’s recommended that all documentation required by customs are in the name of the receiver, who should be the owner of the shipment. If any documentation is in the sender’s name, and this differs from the receiver’s name, customs may reject the shipment.

When shipping personal effects, please ensure that the names of both the sender and receiver match those of the shipment's owner.
For shipments to the UAE you are required to declare the value of your items on your customs forms.

Shipments that are valued over 300 AED require a copy of the receiver’s Residence or Employment visa to qualify for duty or tax relief. Those who do not hold a Residence or Employment Visa, or a UAE Passport, are advised to avoid sending items in excess of 300 AED in order to be eligible for the duty or tax relief.

Sending gifts to the UAE does not currently have a gift exemption, this is at the discretion of the customs agent.

When completing your customs forms, it’s important that you do this accurately and clearly. In order to demonstrate that your shipment consists of personal effects, you must describe each item within your shipment. For example, you might declare:

4 x Used Black Men's Cotton T-Shirts
1 x Pair Used Brown Leather Shoes (size 8)
2 x Used Dark Blue Jeans Denim (size Small)
Occasionally customs fees may apply, but this depends on multiple factors, including the accuracy of the values declared on your customs forms. In the event that customs fees are due, our courier partner will reach out to you with a breakdown of the fees. These fees can then be paid online or over the phone through our courier partner, who will be liaising with UAE Customs regarding your shipment aiming to expedite the clearance process, and get your shipment out for delivery as soon as possible.

Shipments to the UAE may be subject to a clearance fee ranging from 70 to 100 AED.

Whilst we can provide general information about customs, we recommend that you make yourself aware of potential customs duties in the UAE and be sure to follow any advice provided by customs.
We aim to deliver your items to the UAE within the advised delivery estimate. However, on rare occasions items can encounter delays when going through customs clearance. Therefore we don’t recommend sending time-sensitive items.
