Transportation:

Please don't forget to attach our import permit along with the parcel to avoid any hiccups at Dubai airport/customs. This permit can also be downloaded from our website and the link is: http://www.cvrl.ae/cvrl-pdf/imp_permit.pdf It is very important that a copy of our import permit is attached both inside and outside the parcel, which will ensure smooth flow at Dubai airport. The samples should reach CVRL in cool condition; but use of dry ice is not recommended as it will change the category of the consignment to a higher level of inspection at customs. Use of ample ice cubes and cool elements will serve the purpose rather than dry ice. Please bear in mind that we do not have any clearing department or personnel for that purpose and therefore it is recommended to send the samples either through FedEx or DHL, who will deliver it to our door. Our physical address for that purpose is:

Central Veterinary Research Laboratory (CVRL)
17 Sub street of 22 A Street
Community 337
Zabeel 2
Dubai, UAE
Tel: 04-3375165 (Sunday to Thursday 08:00 am to 04:00 pm) and 050-7486956 (during holidays and after office hours)
