Moving to UAE
Britannia Ryans has extensive experience in international removals, so we’re well-placed to help if you’re moving to the UAE. With an expert UK-based team and trusted partners across the UAE, we can help to make your move completely hassle-free. We know that an international move is a big step, so we’ll provide professional and reliable removals services, assisting with every step of your move for a smooth transition.
We can help transport all types of items to the UAE, to get you settled into your new home. We’ll begin by conducting a pre-move survey in person or via video call, so we can establish exactly what will be needed for your move. We can then take the necessary steps to prepare, working towards your timeframe and providing you with any additional services, such as packing or specialist equipment for fragile items. When packing your items, we’ll barcode everything and provide you with an inventory, so you’ll be able to easily keep track of your belongings.
As well as transporting your possessions, we can also provide storage options if you decide you don’t want to take everything with you. We’ll keep your items safe and sound in our state-of-the-art storage facility until you return.
Commercial Moves to UAE
Britannia Ryans has extensive experience in business and commercial moves. We can assist with your business relocation to the UAE, providing specialist knowledge and equipment to ensure your items are transported safely and securely. We’ll conduct a pre-move survey so we know exactly what will be needed and we’ll ensure you’re efficiently set up in your new location in the UAE. We can also provide business and document storage, labelling and filing archive boxes in a way that makes sense for your business, so you can easily find any paperwork that’s been stored.
Shipping to UAE
Container shipping by sea is our most common method for international shipping. It’s usually the most affordable mode of transport, although it can take weeks for items to travel. It’s best to arrange transport in advance, although you should be aware that you’ll need to be in the UAE to receive your belongings and clear customs.
Air freight is a fast method of transportation, but it is also more expensive than sea freight. It can be a good option if you only have a few items to transport and/or if you require your items to be moved in a quicker timeframe.

UAE Customs and Imports
Britannia Ryans can provide advice and guidance for the necessary customs forms and paperwork needed for your specific shipment to UAE.
You will not need to pay any customs duty when you import your personal goods, as long as they fulfill certain conditions. If your personal luggage along with any perfume or gifts costs more than 3,000 AED, you will need to pay duty. There are also limits on alcohol, tobacco, and electronics. New household goods (purchased less than six months before your entry to the UAE) will also be liable for duty.
You will need to provide certain documents, including your passport, residence visa, and inventory, to the Federal Customs Authority to clear customs. You will need to already be in the UAE to receive your belongings and your items must be delivered within six months of you arriving.
