Speaking of Customs Forms

Did you ever not declare something you were supposed to declare ?

I did once on a flight back from Germany.

I simply got an ass-chewing right there and then allowed to proceed.

No. I'm a chicken.

No, I save every receipt, put them into an envelope and list what we each purchase on the envelope and keep it handy in case we are asked.

Not intentionally ...unless son stuffs something in my carry on ...

Absolutely not! (This is a public forum, after all.Wink)

Let me clarify that my transgression was unintentional -- I did verbally declare the item (which was how I got caught).

I think the Customs agent was missing his morning cup of coffeeBig Smile

We had one cruise where we declared nothing. The custom agent asked if we really didn't buy even a t-shirt. We explained that this was our 20th (somewhere in that area) cruise and all we bought were drinks the boarding photo. We had all the t-shirts we needed. He grinned and waved us on. It was the truth. If we have ever missed something it was not intentional.

I remember a couple of cruises ago, we handed the card to the agent. He glanced at us and started with the "friendly" questions -- what was your favorite port, where do you work, etc (designed to get you talking freely). He then asked, "Didn't you buy any jewelry?"

I answered, "Yes, it is declared on the form".

He turned red and waived us throughBig Smile

Just got back from a cruise out of Miami, no custom forums unless you had over $ 800.00 to declare. Just showed passport and I was good. All I bought were some T-shorts and a gold shirt.

For the question....... I take the 5th, this is public Big Smile

Maybe we should rephrase the question to: Has your "friend" ever not declared something they should haveBig Smile
