If you are planning to ship household goods and other items to UAE, there is some paperwork that you will definitely need. Make sure you have the following paperwork in order before shipping to the UAE:
Two copies of your passport
A residence permit
Proof of employment in UAE
Detailed inventory of your cargo shipping items written in English with an original and two additional copies
When you are cargo shipping to the UAE, keep in mind that all cargo shipments are subject to inspection. You can ship used household goods and personal items duty-free but you will need to obtain a Residence Permit.
If you are shipping new household goods and personal items, you will be expected to pay duty fees. This will be determined in greater detail by customs officials. A company offering professional international cargo shipping services can also assist you with these important details.
