How to Import Orchid from Thailand to Dubai

Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a popular market for orchids. The oil money in this country has made it one of the best destinations for flowers from all over the world. The orchids of Thailand will definitely make an impact here, whether you are importing them for personal reasons or for commercial purposes.

 

One thing you need to know is that the UAE is very strict in terms of the flora and fauna it allows into the country. This is not a country where you bring in orchids unannounced and expect to pass through customs as if you were just carrying a laptop. As a respecter of global conventions and treaties, this nation strictly controls the entry of orchids, like many other flowers.

 

Familiarize yourself with the existing laws and regulations on the importation of orchids in both Thailand and UAE. Establish whether the flowers you want to import are allowed into the country and how much it will cost you to get the relevant permits. Does the country allow only cut flowers or you can import the whole plant?

 

Armed with this information, contact the seller of the orchids and agree on the best way to ship the plants to Dubai. Dubai is a busy city with an impressive and effective flight connectivity system. Remember that you have to pay not only for the flowers but also for the various inspection and courier fees until the orchids reach you.
