Exclamation Moving to Dubai: Should i take my TV?

Hello!

I recently got a new TV and dont want to sell it, I am moving to Dubai and i was wondering if i can take it with me. It wouldn't cost me as i will use Emirates to take it and it will be under my weight allowance.

I am worried if there will be any custom charges at Dubai airport on the tv or if there is any voltage difference that will make the tv not work.

Please let me know ill be very thankful!

No duty, no voltage problems
TV's are much cheaper here.

It may well get broken. Loads of TVs here! Have you got a relative could "look after" it for you?
