A high-ranking delegation from the Royal Omani Police (ROP) has visited the Khatm Milaha border port, where they were impressed by the modern customs services as well as the amenities provided to travelers arriving in or exiting the UAE.

The delegation spoke highly of the port’s readiness and its in-house developed customs monitoring and inspection systems being used to ensure the smooth flow of vehicle movement through the port.

HE Major General Suhail Saeed Al Khaili, Acting Director General of the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security, HE Mohammed Mir Abdul Rahman, Director of the Seaports and Customs Department at the Sharjah Ports, Customs and Free Zones Authority; HE Mohamed Ibrahim Al Raisi, Director of Ports and Border Points Affairs, Chairman of the Organizational Committee of Ports and Border Points; and HE Ahmed bin Lahej Al Falasi, Acting Director General of the General Administration of Customs, received the ROP delegation at Khatm Milaha border port.

The Omani delegation was led by HE Brigadier Nasser bin Salem Al Hosani, Director General Communications at ROP, along with Brigadier General Saeed bin Khamis Al Ghaithi, Director General of Oman Customs, and a number of senior officials.

A meeting was held on the sideline of the visit during which the Emirati and Omani officials reviewed the latest development plans for the port, as well as its advanced infrastructure, smart systems, and state-of-the-art customs inspection equipment being used, in addition to its operational standards for security and safety. 

Welcoming the Omani delegation to Khatm Milaha, Mohamed Ibrahim Al Raisi stressed that the meeting provided a platform for exploring avenues of cooperation with the Omani side and exchanging knowledge about the operation of border crossings.

"Khatm Milaha border port is one of the major land border crossings in the UAE, which in addition to hiring highly qualified cadres, makes use of the latest techniques, systems, and equipment, hence we are keen to share our expertise with the Omani counterpart," said Al Raisi.
