New UAE tax applies to all international deliveries

The tax applies to packages worth more than Dhs300 – it is industry-wide, meaning it will impact orders from Amazon and other delivery retailers.

It all links back to a UAE customs notice first issued in June 2022, that is now fully in force.

According to the notice, you must now pay a five percent customs duty charge and five percent VAT if you buy something worth more than Dhs300.

If you purchase something worth less than Dhs300, you are exempt from paying any fee.
