Why You are Being Advised Not To Take Parcels When Traveling to Dubai

Information coming from the Consulate General of the Republic of Ghana in Dubai indicates that at least 5 persons have been arrested with one serving a 10-year jail term for trafficking Marijuana into the United Arab Emirate, Dubai.


An announcement made to Members of the Ghanaian community in Duba, it revealed that all five persons were arrested between January and March 2020. 


It further indicated that all five stated that the parcels containing marijuana were given to them by agents in Ghana who acquired their UAE Visa for them, with instruction to give the parcels to their counterpart agents in the UAE on arrival.

"The sad part is that all the parcels containing the weed were given to them by the agents in Ghana who acquired the visa for them, with instruction to them to give the parcels to their counterpart agent in the UAE on arrival. It is also interesting to know that the weed is normally hidden in food items", the statement noted.


The consulate general further advised travelers and the general public to advise relatives coming from Ghana to Dubai never to accept messages or parcels from any other person to bring to Dubai except if they can inspect and ascertain the true content of the message or parcel.
