Qatar Customs has said that following the search of a departing passenger from the country who did not disclose it, there was no evidence of his ownership of it.
As per Qatar Customs, a traveler is obliged to declare the money or valuable materials he carries, in implementation of the provisions of the Combating Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism No. (20) of 2019 and Council of Ministers Decision No. (41) of 2019, which stipulates the need for travelers to make a declaration upon arriving or departing the country, in the event that they possess currencies, coins, precious jewelry, or negotiable financial instruments with a value of or more than 50 thousand Qatari Riyals. The declaration form is filled out at the customs declaration office in all air, sea, or land travel ports.
Accordingly, the authority called upon travelers to adhere to the declaration form if they meet the mentioned conditions when traveling. This is within the framework of implementing the law that aims to protect the security of society from the dangers of money laundering and terrorist financing in all its forms.
