Can I pack my own goods when I move to Dubai?
If you are sending items which have been packed by yourself "owner packed" then they will attract more stringent inspection by Customs on arrival in Dubai.
Providing a detailed carton by carton inventory will assist Customs in inspecting your effects, and may avoid unnecessary delays.
It is advisable to have your goods packed by OSS if you are looking at sending larger consignments, to ensure the clearance process can be conducted with a minimum of fuss.
How do I move my car to Dubai?
Moving motor vehicles and motor bikes to Dubai is possible provided Customs criteria are met.
This service is usually depot to depot, meaning the motor vehicle will be collected by you from our partners depot in Dubai following customs clearance.
Customs may require evidence that the owner of the vehicle has lived abroad for 12 months or longer, so a copy of your passport with date stamp showing arrival in Dubai, or copy of lease or rental agreement on in Dubai would be sufficient.
Can I move my boat to Dubai?
Moving a boat to Dubai has similar requirements to moving a car to Dubai when it comes to registration requirements and process.
Customs and Quarantine in Dubai will have a special interest in the boat due to its exposure to marine life, however as Australia has a fairly clean marine environment, your boat should pass customs and quarantine without any problem.
How long will my move to Dubai take?
Clearance of your move into Dubai takes approximately 5 to 7 working days for an FCL (Full Container Load e.g. not a shared container), and 7 to 10 working days for a GRP (Groupage or shared container load) once the shipping container has been unloaded from the vessel.
What insurance should I have when moving to Dubai?
OSS offers a full range of moving insurance options depending on your needs.
Although your shipment to Dubai will be packed to export standards (designed to withstand the the longest journey), the small cost of insurance gives you complete peace of mind with regard to the exposure and rigours inherent in moving from one side of the world to the other.
