New Customs Rule for Imported Goods into Saudi Arabia
RIYADH - Kingdom tower

Effective November 3rd, the Saudi Customs Authority will require all Customs Declarations ('Bayan') to indicate payment method for specific imported goods arriving to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Goods that require one to specify the payment methods are:

  • Goods whose value range from $150 to $13,250 must state payment method only.
  • Goods valued above $13,250 must state the payment method and provide the payment method document.
Meanwhile, goods that do not require one to specify the payment method are:
  • Personal goods that are shipped to individuals and are for personal use only.
  • Goods valued below $150
Method of payment may be cash, remittance, bank credit or any other method. The Customs Declaration ('Bayan') needs to also indicate:
  1. Bank name
  2. Payment date
  3. Reference number
All supporting documents related to payment need to be attached to the Customs Declaration ('Bayan').

Failure to comply with the aforementioned regulation may lead to the delay of clearance of incoming goods into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

This regulation comes as part of the Saudi Customs Authority’s efforts to meet the standards of anti-money laundering activities.
