July 6, 20180

Director of Air Customs Department at the General Administration of Customs, Walid Al-Nasser, has called on passengers to check their baggage only, not to accept bags from unknown people saying the passenger will be held legally liable for the bags in his/her possession.

During a tour of the airport to get first hand information about the preparations being made by the General Administration of Customs for the travel season, Al- Nasser told the daily, if the passenger carries cash of up to $10,000 or its equivalent in local currency, he must disclose it to the customs officers so as not to be held legally accountable under the law of smuggling or money laundering.

On the nature of the work of the Air Customs Administration, he said the work of the administration is to supervise and control all that comes in or leaves the State of Kuwait through the Kuwait International Airport and within the customs area specified in all airport buildings and border points irrespective whether they are accompanied by passengers or just goods according to the unified customs law of the GCC countries.

These include the Kuwait International Airport Terminal, the Sheikh Saad International Airport and the newly built airport terminal. The coverage area includes air cargo of all types of ‘cargo, export, transit’ as well as supervision of free market sales.

Asked about the number of customs inspectors working inside the airport terminal, Nasser said the actual number is 145, including a customs inspectors, security inspectors, and administrative officers. There are also 45 customs inspectors, bringing the total number to 190. He pointed out that their number is insufficient in light of the expansions and the future outlook of new Kuwait.
