Qatar Customs

Kindly note that the General Directorate of Customs (GDC) has informed us that the implementation of automated electronic clearance process, ‘Single Window’/’Al Nadeeb’, has been introduced to clear express courier shipments at the Doha International Airport.

According to new system rules, all Qatar importers / traders must register and update their company commercial registration information and contact details into the new customs system.

In order to ensure smooth clearance of your shipments, consignee will have to visit the GDC building at Cournish Street– 3rd Floor and ensure registering their company on the new clearance system. During  the registration they must authorize Abu Samra for Cargo & Customs Clearance as their clearing agent by selecting Abu Samra for Cargo & Customs Clearance (CR # 7965) as the authorized clearance agent.

Failure to comply with the registration and authorization processes will result in shipments being held by customs in the bond area until the process is completed.

MEX Courier would strongly recommend that the following information be available on the original printed invoice of each non-document inbound consignment that you import, to avoid any delay in customs clearance:

  • Invoice Number
  • Item’s Country of Manufacture (Made in what Country)
  • Item’s HS code (Harmonized System code)
  • Detail description of the goods (Sample is not an acceptable one)
  • Declared Value with the currency code used
  • Consignee full name and address

Please note that for personal shipments there will be no Legalization charges involved, if the value is less than 3000 QR ‎also there will be no customs duty. Only Bayan charges 10 QR to be paid to customs authority and Admin charges will be 40 QR. And Consignee’s ID copy is required for clearance.


For shipments addressed to Companies there will be a minimum Legalization charge of 250 QR + 10 QR Bayan charges + customs duty (5% of the Invoice value) & 40 QR Admin charges
