Egypt reveals the amount of gold and dollars allowed to enter through airports

Majid Moussa, director general of customs at Cairo International Airport, has revealed the amount of gold and dollars allowed to be brought in through airports to keep the passenger from falling under the law.

Moussa indicated in a telephone conversation with journalist Amr Adeeb on Al-Hekaya on Monday evening that they encourage the transfer of gold or hard currency to the state, but in a way that is not against the law. , continuing: We are not opposed to the introduction of gold or currency into the country, even if it reaches millions of dollars, on the contrary, we encourage newcomers, whether Egyptians or foreigners, to do so, which is beneficial for the Egyptian economy.

The Director General of Customs at Cairo International Airport confirmed that the law gives passengers, whether Egyptians or foreigners, surcharges of US$10,000 or its currency equivalent, as legal as financing terrorism.

He added that customs does not confiscate anything, but keeps it in deposits at the airport until the competent authorities make a decision and pay a conciliatory cost, continuing: “Customs does not object to women who wear gold for personal use, but suspicion arises if the amount is not commensurate with the social status” of a female passenger or the presence of an amount of gold exceeding the limits for personal use in an exaggerated form.

The Director General of Customs at Cairo International Airport confirmed that customs does not lie in wait for a citizen, whether an Egyptian or a foreigner, and a citizen who is not going to hide on our head, and there is no objection to a citizen bringing currency from abroad, but subject to disclosure.
