Shipping from Dubai to Vietnam

Vietnam is a fast-paced country with spectacular landscapes and very good infrastructure yet in terms of cost of living, it’s less expensive than Thailand, Malaysia and even Cambodia. There is a huge variety of street food and you may feel there is no longer any need to cook at home. If Vietnam doesn’t offer quite enough it’s a great hub, with places like Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and China right on your doorstep.

However, whether you are shipping from Dubai to Vietnam for the first time, migrating to Vietnam for good, or returning home as a Vietnamese citizen. Relocating can be a daunting experience and the upheaval of changing Jobs/Lifestyle/Location can be stressful.

What should I prioritise when moving from the UAE to Vietnam?

When should I start obtaining quotes for my relocation to Vietnam?

We would suggest you start obtaining quotes for shipping to Vietnam at least 6-8 weeks before the target move date.

This should provide time to consider your quotations, formally advise the shipping company you have chosen and very importantly, secure your preferred moving dates.

Also, this allows enough time to finalise your visa/travel/shipping documents and all the other formalities you have to contend with before your move. Vietnam is a county with quite a bit of red-tape and so this is likely to take more time than you anticipate.

What is the cost of moving to Vietnam from Dubai?

The cost of relocating from Dubai to Vietnam depends on a few factors. The most important factor is the volume of furniture. Generally speaking, the more furniture you include in your move, the higher the cost will be. 

Secondly is the Mode of shipping you choose. 

If you have a sufficient volume, then choose to move your items in your own shipping container, or if you’re moving only a few items and only a small amount of furniture you could choose a shared container.

This is known as “Groupage” in the moving industry. Of course, sharing a container, or Groupage, is likely more cost-effective than a dedicated container. However, the compromise you make is shipping times can be a little longer.

Approximate shipping cost options to Vietnam are as follows:

Full Container (20ft / 40ft) – Starting from AED 13,000 AED

Groupage (Shared Container) – Starting from AED 600/CBM

LCL (Less than a container load) – Starting from AED 450/CBM

Air (Quickest, Most Expensive) – Starting from AED 25/KG

How long does it take to ship my goods to Vietnam?

When estimating how long shipping from Dubai to Vietnam takes, we have to consider the mode the goods would be travelling by. Air is the quickest and Sea is the slowest, with shared container options taking a little longer.

Approximate transit times

Air Shipment – (3-4 Days)

Sole Container by Sea – (25-30 Days)

Part Container by Sea – (45-60 Days)

Another consideration when estimating time-frame is processing the shipment and customs clearance in Dubai and in Vietnam. We would allow up to 1 week at both ends. (Airfreight should take a couple of days at both ends).
