Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

KUWAIT: Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the Cus­toms Depart­ment Ja­mal Al-Jalawi said the depart­ment has working plans for all sea­sons, es­pe­cially dur­ing hajj and sum­mer. He said the depart­ment is ready at all its posts by in­creas­ing the num­ber of male and fe­male in­spec­tors in or­der to ease the pro­ce­dures for those re­turn­ing from sum­mer hol­i­days. Jalawi said there is a plan to ease pro­ce­dures for pil­grims and their re­turn to the coun­try ei­ther through the air­port or land bor­der out­lets.

Mean­while, Jalawi said Kuwait has a very strict law to fight money laun­der­ing, so all trav­el­ers must de­clare any amounts over KD 3,000 ac­cord­ing to law 106/2014 ei­ther upon ar­rival and de­par­ture. He said Kuwait has no re­stric­tion on money car­ried by cit­i­zens and ex­pats, but must it be de­clared. He warned cit­i­zens and ex­pats against car­ry­ing lug­gage that does not be­long to them.
