If you are living in Ruwais and you love online shopping, you will have a hard time getting your packages delivered to your door step.

In order to take advantage of the online deals you have 3 choices:
1. Signup for Shop and Ship service from Aramex. Through this service you can get packages delivered to Ruwais from all over the world at an additional cost.
