I will be traveling from Australia to Austria, transferring in Abu Dhabi. Is it alright for me to bring a vibrator in the check-in luggage, or are there laws against that?
It is approximately 17cm long. Are there any precautions to take?
Upon landing at Abu Dhabi; you and your luggage will be subject to an x-ray scan. At this point, any suspicious items will be confiscated.
Although you are not importing items into the UAE (as you never enter the country, but are in transit) nevertheless any goods deemed inappropriate will be seized.
You do run the risk of having the item confiscated but nothing more.
it gets confiscated and you get a fine of $250 USD and get asked to sign plenty of documents that you did that and that you wont do it again, all documents will be in arabic and not translated and they dont care about the fact that you cant read !!! it was the worst experience ever i hated the way i was treated and will never again stop or transit through abu dhabi
I brought sex toys to Dubai from the USA on a few occasions, never had an issue. I think the custom will let go if it's few toys but not more as it will seem like you are a seller of sex toys.
