International Shipping from / to Yemen
Shipping services to Yemen
Being on a peninsula, the Republic of Yemen receives a fair amount of its shipments via ocean cargo freight liners. It can also get shipments through air mail, which will be much faster generally than going by ocean cargo holds. The Republic of Yemen does accept shipment sent there via road freight trucks, but this is generally just from regional companies given its geographical location. It is best to check with your shipping company as to what options you have available so you can compare various modes of travel for your goods before making a final decision.
Security concerns when shipping to Yemen
The Republic of Yemen is not generally a safe place, no matter how you look at it. You will want to take caution when shipping there, as many packages being shipped to foreigners in the country are targeted and stolen. Additionally, delivery carriers are targeted in thefts quite often, stealing packages before they even get in route to your intended recipient. If you must ship there, you will not want to send anything of real value or that can not be replaced easily. You will also be wise to get some insurance on your items in case they fall victim to this kind of criminal activity.
Transit times when shipping to Yemen
Before you shipping your items to the Republic of Yemen, you will want to check with your shipping company of choice to find out what your options are for transit times. As a rule of thumb, you will have more options for timing if you ship via air mail, a little less options with road freight trucks, and virtual no options with ocean cargo freight liners. That being said, each shipping company has their own rules so should be consulted to know what they offer based on where your package will originate and what exactly you are going to be shipping.
