What to buy at a bargain while traveling abroad
Take a trip and save on purchases of diamonds, electronics, leather, and even health care.
Be sure to declare all your purchases and gifts to Customs when you return home. If you don't, you risk losing the goods and/or paying a hefty fine for not declaring them. It's called smuggling.
Duty Free items? Have to be declared.
Used/worn items? Have to be declared.
Wearing currently? Have to be declared.
Basically...anything you have when you return home that you didn't have when you left...has to be declared.Whether you bought it, received it as a gift, found it, stole it...it fell out of the sky... .
Different if you are away working/studying for awhile and things are over 6 months old.
At least that's how it works for the US. May be different elsewhere.
