    Qatar General Customs Authority has implemented an increase in customs clearance service charges and fees.

    Consequently, there has been an increase in various charges, including but not limited to the Bayan fee, handling fee, Request for Reconciliation (RFR) and manifest filing.

    With these new charges coming into effect, extra admin work which will go towards the clearance and therefore we are forced to increase our minimum Admin / Disbursement Fee charge effective the 15th November 2017 as follows:

    • Commercial Shipment QR 85 / Bayan
    • Personal shipment QR 15 / Bayan


    For avoidance of doubt, charges mentioned under “Other Charges” are levied by Falcon Express Services Qatar due to the reasons mentioned above.
