Hi all! I found this infographic on this site the other day and thought it’d be cool to share.
I can’t believe that drugs one. Makes you wonder the process that went into putting them and extracting them from.. where they were stored. Eww. Actually, there’s a picture of the fish-in-skirt here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/expat/expatpicturegalleries/8757426/Anything-to-declare-Bizarre-things-confiscated-at-Customs.html?image=11
Here are some more – let’s say I feel a lot less bad trying to bring my copic markers in my hand luggage! Some of these are postal customs, but hey – how could I resist?
I’ve had my bag searched a few times – it’s always daft things that set the scanner off – Eater Eggs and gifts from Disney Land Paris to name a few. It’s slightly embarrassing, but I can’t imagine why anyone would try to smuggle stuff like this through airport security. However, compared to the UK and US – a lot of countries have pretty lax security, so they wouldn’t notice if you brought your one bottle of wine with you!
Any customs to declare – I’d love to hear your stories!
