Dubai Customs (DC) completed 25.7 million customs transactions in 2022, while maintaining the highest levels of security at the emirate’s borders. Dubai Customs also made 2,147 seizures.

Being the oldest government department in the emirate, Dubai Customs has been an active player in the UAE’s progress throughout 2022, recording a remarkable performance in customs transactions, seizures and creative services.

“Boosting Dubai external trade and facilitating business for traders and investors is a priority in our strategic planning following the vision and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai,” said Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, Director-General of Dubai Customs, CEO of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation. “This will consolidate the emirate’s position on the global competitiveness indexes and indicators and grow mutual trade.”

Musabih added, “The Government of Dubai’s general budget for the fiscal cycle of 2023-2025, with total expenditures of AED205 billion, will entice more investments into the emirate. From our side we are working in full swing through our Strategic Plan 2021-2026, which stands on five principles: Agile, Innovative, Digital, Disruptive, Visionary, following four main objectives to enhance revenues, reduce costs, and maintain the organisation’s leading role worldwide.
