Customs Uniforms

The new uniform of Bahrain Customs was introduced in 2009. The modern uniforms are in line with contemporary customs organizations and in line with international standards.

 

Customs Insignia

The Insignia of customs includes a gate with a crown above, signifying the organization as being the ‘gatekeepers’ of the Kingdom of Bahrain, tasked with the role of protecting the community and citizens from potential risks arising from international trade and travel,  whilst facilitating legitimate movement of goods and people. 

Bahrain Customs is part of the Ministry of Interior, therefore the customs insignia is usually accompanied by the insignia of the Ministry of Interior.
