This hugely benefits the national economy and Dubai trade as part of the emirate’s vision of maintain its status as a unique hub of trade and tourism. We keep innovating to help passengers visiting Dubai have a pleasant experience and to save them time and effort” Musabih said. 


The passenger operations department made 1563 seizures during the first half of 2019 (1306 criminal seizures and 257 customs seizures). 


Director General of Dubai Customs was accompanied by Abdullah Mohammed Al Khaja, Executive Director of Customer Management Division, Farid Hassan Al Marzouqi, Executive Director, Human Resources, Finance and Administration Division, Shuaib Al Suwaidi, Director of Customs Intelligence Department, and Khalid Ahmed, Acting Director of Passenger Operations Department.
