1- As per UAE customs authorities each company registered  in UAE should appoint an authorized clearance agent


 2-The  Authorized clearance agent will act as the company representative in front of the customs authorities and will be responsible to clear the company shipments and to solve any issues related to shipping documents, overweight, duties etc.


3- In Ghuwaifat Border there are 21 clearance agents offices and they are charging clearance fees   50 AED to 150 AED or more, depends on the agreement between the company and the clearance agent.


4- Other fees to be paid in Ghuwaifat Border: 270 AED cross borders fees and 10 AED printing and faxing fees.


Before assigning any clearance agent, there are important questions  to be asked:


1-Is he sending daily reports related to the in-transit shipments?

2-Is he sending borders last updates like policies, rules ..etc.

3-Clerance charges, it is negotiable and it could be 50 AED or 150AED.

4-Security deposit coverage,  some transit shipments needs 5% refundable security deposit to be paid to Abu Dhabi customs authorities and sometimes the amount could be huge .

Is he strong enough to pay such refundable deposit on behalf of the company?

And if yes, what will be the service fees that he will charges ?


Choosing the right clearance agent is very important to avoid detention fees which could affect the company profit.


Transport companies offering 24Hr borders free waiting time, if the clearance agent not fast enough then the transport companies will charge the company a detention of 300 AED to 500 AED per day.
