Moving To Canada From Dubai – Get Help With International Moving From UAE
If you’re moving to Canada from Dubai or elsewhere in the UAE, the process can certainly seem very intimidating. But after you’ve secured your immigration permits and are ready to make your move, the biggest step is making your move – and shipping your household goods to the country.
How Can I Get Started With Moving To Canada From Dubai?
The best thing to do is to contact a company that has a lot of experience with international moving and shipping household items from Dubai to Canada – such as A-1 Auto Transport. You will need to work closely with your moving company to get your items through customs and ensure they arrive safely at your new home in Canada.
An experienced international moving company can help you with things like paying taxes and fees on imported goods, getting your paperwork together and putting together a moving timeline for moving to Canada from Dubai.
Can I Bring My Household Goods & Car To Canada From Dubai?
Yes. When you move to Canada from any other country, you can bring all of your household goods, such as clothes, jewelry, books, furniture, musical instruments, tools, appliances, and more. No duties or taxes will be collected on common household items. If you are bringing a car into Canada for personal use, it can also be imported duty-free.
In both Dubai and Canada, drivers drive on the right side of the road, so you don’t have to worry about having to alter your vehicle when shipping cars to Canada. However, your car must meet the requirements of the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act, or you may not be able to bring it to Canada.
How Will My Items Be Sent To Canada From Dubai?
The most common way to ship items to Canada from Dubai is by ocean-going freight. Usually, your items will be packed into a cargo container and sent on a container ship to Canada from Dubai. Air freight can also be used, but it is much more expensive, so it’s commonly used.
If you choose ocean shipping, it may take several weeks, a month, or longer for your goods to arrive in Canada from Dubai, so you will need to coordinate closely with your moving company to make sure your goods arrive at the proper time.
