The intensive financial monitoring system in Kuwait resulted in the arrest of many Asians and Arabs from the border.

According to local daily reports, security men and customs officers assigned in the borders have arrested many Asians and Arabs who tried to enter or leave Kuwait with huge amount of cash exceeding KD 3,000 or $10,000 without giving details on the source of money.

10 departure and arrival passengers who had more than KD3,000 cash in their possession did not reveal the source of their money and were arrested at the border, local reports says. All those arrested were referred to the concerned authority for investigation as per law number 106/2013 on money laundering and financing terrorism.

Citizens and expatriates are urged not to carry cash amount more than KD 3,000 whenever they travel or declare the sources of their money; otherwise, they will be referred to the Public Money and Commercial Affairs Section in the Public Prosecution which handles money laundering cases.
