Shipping to UAE delivery times


Not only do we offer some of the best-priced courier services from the UK to the United Arab Emirates, they're speedy too – even to the Arabian Peninsula, you can still expect delivery to take just 3 days. Note that we always aim to deliver your items within these timescales, sometimes it can take a little longer for your parcel to arrive, especially to more remote areas.

Remember, to ensure the quickest delivery possible, you should also be aware of what you can and can’t send in the post, particularly to Middle Eastern countries – all items will need clearance through Customs, so ensure you label everything clearly and correctly to avoid any unnecessary delays and costs. 

United Arab Emirates Customs Information


For any parcel heading outside of the UK, you’ll need to fill out a customs form. This tells the Customs Agents in the destination country about the contents of your package so they can process it correctly.

As with most international postings, when you send a parcel to the United Arab Emirates from the UK, there are sometimes additional customs duties and import taxes that need to be paid, depending on the contents. For example, shipments with a value greater than USD $270 will attract 5% duty and clearance delays. When preparing your package, include an inventory describing all the contents help expedite clearance.

Sending personal effects to the UAE requires additional declaration, and the same duty applies as above if the goods are not used or any items appear to be in commercial quantities. You will need to include a written list of all the goods and a copy of the recipient's passport/visa will be required.

If this sounds like a bit of a challenge, don’t worry - when you book your delivery with us, we will provide you with all the correct forms you need to help your parcel through both UK and UAE customs.

HM Revenue & Customs has more information on tax and customs considerations for the United Arab Emirates.

What items can't I send to the United Arab Emirates?


Before booking your courier service to the UAE, please check that all the items you’re planning on sending are allowed; sometimes regular, everyday products to us in the UK are in fact restricted or prohibited to send to other countries.

The UAE is a Muslim country and as such, there are strict regulations around many items; in particular, those which could cause offence to the Muslim culture. Please be mindful of this when sending parcels to the United Arab Emirates and err on the side of caution – check carefully any goods which may not be allowed, and check each time you send something as the regulations can change from time to time.

For more information on restricted and prohibited items for UAE and how to avoid bringing banned items into the country– visit the Government of Dubai website.

Products such as alcohol, fresh (perishable) foodstuffs and narcotics are not only prohibited to send to United Arab Emirates, they’re also on our prohibited list - take a look at the full list before you prepare to send your parcel. In the meantime, some examples of items you can’t post to the UAE include:



Illegal and dangerous


Meat, poultry and fish

Drugs, alcohol and chemicals

Any objects, sculptures, paintints, books or magazine which do not adhere to religious and moral values of the UAE

Eggs and dairy products


Endangered animal species
Perishable goods Weapons, firearms and explosives

Precious metals and stones

*Please be aware that we also have our own prohibited items list, in addition to country-specific restrictions.

How safe will my parcel be?


We pride ourselves on the excellent courier services we offer around the world, right from your first quote to the moment your parcel arrives in your recipient’s hands. We also take the responsibility of delivering parcels very seriously, so don’t worry about your package arriving in the UAE safely, it’s safe with us.

Depending where in the UK you send your parcel from, the distance to the UAE is likely to be around 4,000 miles, which is why we advise taking a little extra care when getting your parcels ready for transport. All parcels will go through a number of depots with both manual handling and automated sorting machines, and of course the road and air transit to get all the way to the Middle East.
