Custom Duty

Customs Duty is a tax imposed on imports and exports of goods.

UAE has adopted a GCC common tariff, and customs duties are fixed at 5% of the CIF value of most products. However, , carbonated, and sweetened beverages products have a 50% duty, and energy drinks, e-smoking devices (tools and liquids used in them) and tobacco products are assessed a 100% customs duty. Certain goods are exempt from customs duties, such as pharmaceuticals and agricultural products.

UAE levies import duties on commercial goods depending on:

  • Whether the business is registered onshore or in an FTZ.
  • Nature of goods being moved.



  • Source and destination of the goods being moved.
  • Trade agreements between the UAE and exporting country.
  • Any other applicable laws.

The UAE has set up a number of Free Trade Zones (FTZs), where there are certain benefits related to tafiffs and customs requirements.
