Prohibited Items Not to be Brought into the UAE

You’ve bagged your dream job, sourced a beautiful villa and your kids have been offered a school place – Dubai here you come! Now for the packing. One of the most popular questions people ask the team at Move One Relocations is what they can and cannot bring into the UAE.

The following items cannot be brought into the UAE – so don’t put them in your shipment or suitcases. Your belongings are certain to be checked using x-ray etc. and any banned items uncovered are sure to be confiscated, cause lengthy and inconvenient delays, and may even result in fines. Some items on the banned list may seem obvious to you but others may surprise you.

  • Anti-Islam Literature
  • Pornography
  • Firearms
  • Narcotics
  • Toxic & Radioactive materials
  • Tobacco
  • Alcohol
  • Pork and Pork products
  • Anything originating in Israel and/or bearing the Jewish sign

For more information on what can and cannot be brought into Dubai please refer to the Moving to UAE section of the Move One Inc. website.
