Thus means a raising of the customs exemption limit on new items at airports.

According to the new decision, the personal belongings of travelers, including tourists and transients, will be exempted from customs up to LE15,000 instead of the LE10,000 in the old law.

This is provided that the exempted items are not intended for trade or resale.

Customs tax and other taxes will be applied on items exceeding the exemption limit.
