I am traveling with my family group of around 12 people. Any tips on what I can carry and/or bring back (gold?) from Dubai within legal permissible limits?

I heard gold is not lucrative anymore after they started charging VAT locally. Is that true?

Would appreciate if someone can comment from personal experience.

I think a very generous amount of gold you can have ON YOUR BODY for self consumption.
But better focus on enjoyment.😄

@Dealbraker I visited in Nov 2018 and they have started charging VAT at that time only but at airport they were refunding full VAT to tourists (counters were made to collect VAT) and legal limit is 1L per person so purchase according to that and also for females upto 1.5L there is no problem at all. And purchase gold for sure from Dubai as gold is very pure and different shining and also as a memory u will have it. One last thing after VAT also there is approx 2k difference compared to Indian price.

Also do visit the gold souk in Dubai or Sharjah.
its like a big mall of only gold shops. You will get a lot of options in terms of designs. Gold price is fix for the day and displayed in the middle of the Souk. Also you will get the lowest making charges.
In my experience you can get nice jewellery with making as low as 5 AED for chains and upto 25-30 AED for sets which turns out much lower than most of our jewellers.
Also they dont CON by saying that the jewellery is imported from Italy and some other countries as they do here, although the pieces are being made right behind their shops !
