See [below for more information on UAE customs].

Read open and honest reviews

Your parcel is in safe hands when you send it with ipostparcels so there’s no need to worry. We offer a free, online parcel tracking system to give you full visibility of the parcel on its journey. And if that’s not enough to ease your mind, we provide £50 free contents cover on your item – you can choose to add extra cover if you wish.

Do I need to deal with UAE customs?

For any parcel heading outside of the EU, 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 recipients passport / visa will be required.

If this sounds like a bit of a challenge, don’t worry - when you book your delivery with ipostparcels, 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 UAE?

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

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 the ipostparcels 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:

Restricted and Prohibited Goods


Illegal and dangerous



Meat, poultry and fish

Drugs, alcohol and chemicals Any objects, sculptures, paintings, books or magazines which do not adhere to religious and moral values of the UAE

Eggs and dairy products

Asbestos 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 to package parcels to the United Arab Emirates

Depending where in the UK you send your parcel from, the distance to the UAE is likely to be around 4000 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.

At ipostparcels, we can carry up to 25kg in weight and 80x80x80cm max in size, but no matter what the size or weight, always use a strong outer box to send your items in and remember not to  overfill it. Don’t forget to use a lightweight cushioning material to help protect the contents from moving around too much in transit and becoming damaged.
