I would hope that most TA members would check what they can and can not bring into a country or take on a plane prior to purchasing certain items that they fall in love with.

I notice you give no example?

Hi

Nice topic point. My favourite thing taken away from me at the Airport was my boogie board bag.

On one trip to Thailand with Thai Airways, at BKK Airport, the Aus Gov had set up an extra security point outside the departure lounge (the one you sit in prior to boarding). They had employed Wormald Security to do it. They confiscated the duty free grog from everyone that had just been bought. The guy in front of me lost a $150 bottle of wine.

Lots of very pissed off people.

Hey fresh prince , had no examples in mind just thought it be a nice topic to share stories if people had one ! Where is the best place to find out about what you can bring from Phuket to Australia ? Do wooden things need to be varnished or sealed somehow ?
