| p.1 #8 · Travel question - equipment when returning to US |
Been to over 100 countries. Never questioned about carrying up to four cameras,
several lenses, etc. by customs. However, airport security especially in Holland,
makes me take out of the bags all the stuff. Just came back from a month in
Berlin. US customs at LAX was asking everyone the same question:
"Do you have more than $10,000?" The government must be running
out of money.
They're trying to prevent money laundering. It's not that you can't bring in/out more cash-- it's that transactions/movement of cash in that quantity or higher are subject to registration/tracking. Same limit, except in euros, applies in the EU.
As for customs and the U.S.... not a thing to worry about re your camera gear. But don't bring back any non-packaged foods. That will piss them off to no end.
