If you are thinking about purchasing a vehicle in Dubai it can be a fantastic deal. We have seen some incredible cars come through as private imports and even with the tax on top, they’re a good deal.

But it is worth noting that if the vehicle wasn’t made in the EU you will be looking at roughly 30% of the purchase price in tax. If it was a vehicle made in the EU then you will be looking at roughly 20%.

Cars depreciate massively in Dubai with each passing year due to the higher costs of driving there and the greater supply of cars than the demand.

So if you are considering on importing one don’t forget to equate in the tax you will have to pay to import it.

The only way to bring a car back tax free is as a transferring resident.
