The best way to go about it is choosing to be served by Global Shopaholics: worldwide parcel forwarding company that receives your products at its US-based warehouse, from where it ships them to your doorstep in the UAE.
Here is all you need to know about shipping from USA to UAE:
1. Duties & Taxes
Like every country, the UAE also has a certain value beyond which you have to pay duties and taxes for importing products. If your product(s) are worth more than a 1000 SAR, you are liable for paying duty. On the contrary, taxes apply to all imported products, regardless of their price. 5% VAT is also charged on every imported shipment based on its total value. Global Shopaholics does not include these tariffs in its shipping charges and you may have to pay this amount to your local Customs Department upon the arrival of your shipment in the UAE.
2. Shipping Duration
The process of getting your favorite items shipped from the US to the UAE may sound very lengthy and draining but with Global Shopaholics, it can be made swifter than ever. After the arrival of your products at our warehouse, it only takes 3-15 business days for your shipment to be delivered to your doorstep, wherever you are located in the UAE. You can also opt for ‘Express Processing’ to prioritize the packaging of your products. So, you don’t have to wait for spring to turn into fall before you get your shopping haul!
3. Stores that do not ship to UAE
Many of your favorite US online stores may not deliver to UAE, which is where we come to your rescue.

4. Stores that require a US credit card
