Officers of the Tolmachevo Airport customs post of Novosibirsk Customs prevented the illegal export of a large amount of cash during customs control of an air flight to the United Arab Emirates

A 35-year-old resident of Novosibirsk chose the “green corridor” in the customs control zone before her flight to Dubai. She declared that she had no goods and currency subject to customs declaration

Customs officers found 15,900 US dollars, 4,100 euros and 140 UAE dirhams in cash in her luggage. A cinematographer and a service spaniel named Feokla helped to detect them

We remind you that cash in the amount exceeding 10 thousand U.S. dollars in equivalent is subject to mandatory written declaration. In addition, there is a ban on export from the Russian Federation cash foreign currency in the amount of more than 10 thousand U.S. dollars in equivalent. The amount of illegally moved money, which the woman tried to take out of the country, amounted to 5911 US dollars, 4190 euros and 140 dirhams

A case on administrative offense under Article 16.4 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (non-declaration of cash by individuals) was initiated against the violator. The illegally transported cash was seized, and the court will make a decision on it
