Default Final answer...??

I know there has been a lot of discussion about this topic on this forum but it seems like a lot of people are saying different things about this..
So I'd like to clarify this with accurate details
Can we carry our collection of downloaded movies to dubai? even if they are movies that are downloaded from the net? is there a quantity? can we carry them in our suitcase instead of shipping?

can anyone give full details regarding this
?\\

thanks in advance

Good god...

I travel frequently for work and pleasure and almost always have a laptop or two with me. They will have movies downloaded on them.

No one has ever stopped me to search my electronics in the five years I've lived in Dubai.

People download movies all the time in the UAE. This isn't Saudi Arabia.

Saudi is *very* similar to the UAE in this regard.

Don't worry about it. Unless you are here to sell movies, no one cares.
