Customs Import in the United Arab Emirates

Customs clearance in the United Arab Emirates is fast and efficient.

No customs duties are applied to personal belongings. Since the United Arab Emirates is an Islamic country, religious propaganda, potentially offensive printed matter, CDs videos or films are totally banned.

All personal imports of such materials are checked at customs. Since strict copyright laws are being enforced in the UAE, pirated video and audiotapes or illegal computer software will be confiscated. Needless to say, controlled substances such as cannabis, opium etc, are banned and the penalties for handling these drugs are severe.

If a blood test for illegal drug usage proves positive, you can be charged with a criminal offence even if you used the drug before arrival in the UAE. The importation of firearms and dangerous weapons is also restricted.

Duty free allowances
* 2000 cigarettes;
* 400 cigars;
* 2 kg tobacco;
* 2 litres of spirits and 2 litres of wine (non-Muslims only) and perfume.

It is prohibited to import alcohol into Sharjah and you are generally not allowed to bring alcohol into the country if you are travelling by land.
