Attention! If you have any problems with customs in the UAE, in any case do not try to negotiate with the customs officer. Corruption in the UAE is almost eradicated, and the punishment for bribery will be severe.

The ban on the import

  • Printed materials and videos, sculpture of an erotic or pornographic nature that may offend the religious feelings of Muslims, or perceived as unfriendly to the state. The prohibition applies even innocent, by Russian standards, and eroticism. For clarification of content, customs officials may be temporarily removed to view the imported video tapes or printed materials.
  • Weapons and drugs (except prescribed by a doctor). Punishment for transportation of drugs even in trace amounts, and even in their own blood (if drugs were used at home and discovered in your blood) is very severe.
  • Products of Israel, or with the logos of Israel.
  • Ivory, Rhino horn.
  • Equipment for gambling.
  • Tires (automotive).
  • Fake, including a gift exchange.
  • Prepared or homemade food, pork.
  • Shortwave radio, radios, radio transmitters.
  • Knives, swords, spears, including toy.

Allowed to import duty-free

Rules allowed duty-free entry to UAE's various official sources of the country are completely different. After studying all the sources we have identified in our opinion the safest minimum value for carriage:

  • 400 cigarettes (2 boxes), 50 cigars, 500 grams of tobacco;
  • Gifts worth up to 3,000 dirhams;
  • Personal hygiene items, clothes, electronics (cameras, camcorders, computers, binoculars, telescopes, DVD players, phones, etc.) for personal use within reasonable limits.

Duty-free import of alcohol in each of the Emirates is normalized differently:

  • Dubai - 4 l alcoholic beverages or 2 cases of beer (each box not more than 24 cans of beer not exceeding a volume of 335 ml. each).
  • In Abu Dhabi and Fujeirah - 4л. any alcoholic beverages;
  • In Sharjah – 2 l alcoholic beverages and 1 pack.

Import export of currency

Any currency, including the national, can be imported and exported without restrictions. The amount of more than 40,000 dirhams (or the equivalent) must be declared.

The importation of animals

Pets (age – not less than 4 months) must be accompanied by a permit issued by the Ministry of agriculture and fisheries UAE (UAE MAF, the cost of registration is 100 dirham), and the veterinary certificate of the international sample with the obligatory indication of all immunizations and their dates. The importation of certain breeds of dogs are prohibited.

The ban on the export

UAE customs regulations on export of very inexpensive, and you can take out almost everything, with the exception of obviously illegal items. The export of gold and silver ornaments bought at the local markets, must be accompanied by a cheque of the outlet (however, local customs officials only pay attention to a really large batch of jewelry). For export from UAE carpets and silver jewelry on the border must present receipts from stores where we made purchases. Products under $250 are not taxed.

Prohibited the export of objects of cultural and historical heritage of the country, wild animals, seeds and fruit trees.

16.10.2019. Radial trip Lauterbrunnen, the ascent to the schilthorn.
Map moving
This day was dedicated to one of the most elegant and popular places in Switzerland, the Lauterbrunnen valley.
Search for "Lauterbrunnen", and you will see a lot krasivejshih photos with a classic Swiss village and waterfall leading down to derevenskom houses from a great height. This is Switzerland!
The village of Lauterbrunnen is located in the neighborhood of Interlaken, very close. You can live in any town on one of the two lakes Toonscom or lake Brienz. We lived in Oberhofen Park on lake Thun -.
Arrived in Lauterbrunnen early in the morning, the sun had only just risen over the mountains. Almost the whole city was enveloped in a cloud of mist, which gradually rose up.
Don't need to know the country once in Lauterbrunnen we knew where to go to the waterfall. The waterfall is called Staubbachfall (hence the river is called Staubbach) and has a height of 297 m.
I tried to lift the drone that would shoot. But it turned out that if you run it from the bottom, at the foot of the slope, it is impossible to lift the drone to the height of the waterfall. In Switzerland drones fly high at 120 meters from the takeoff point. So get to shoot some panorama, waterfall, Lauterbrunnen Yes with top.
I here my companions at this time has risen on special tracks to the tunnel in the rock that leads to a special viewing niche under the waterfall. There you can take photos straight from the waterfall.
My son was particularly spectacular video on the iPhone, when he included "time-lapse" photography. You could see individual drops. Put the video on the trip.
Further back in the centre of Lauterbrunnen. Then I found a huge Parking lot, perhaps even without the p ...

I want to share that on the given sample statements a positive result. The Bank Russian Standard has considered and yesterday returned the money. From the date of submission until receipt of a little more than a month.
But a/K Utair want to say a big "fu" to you for that. It is obvious that they violate the rights of consumers. And by the way, if we were talking about a big amount, I would have used the right to demand the penalty for delay of return. According to the law on consumer Protection:
According to article 23.1 ZZPP, if the seller had breached the term of performance of the obligation under article 20, article 21 and article 22 (the money is not returned, not replaced the purchase has not eliminated its shortcomings), it is obliged to pay a penalty at the rate of 1% of the price for each day not made commitments. The demand for the return of the funds must be satisfied within 10 days.
Another similar statement with another Bank was refused, but the situation is more complicated because the purchase was from AirAsia via Gotogate, still understand. ...
