Naseem said...

Hey Se7en.. great blog you have...

regarding customs... you need to print a paper to declare their values and sign on it... you should mention clearly that those are for personal use and that are NOT commercial... make the declared value very low like 10KD!!!

you may end up paying 4% or 5%.. but try to insist that those are used items and have no commercial value so you don't pay anything.

I live in Dubai... but the customs law in GCC is united so it shouldn't be a problem.

good luck :)

S E 7 E N said...

Naseem : thank you :)

and regarding the customs, the problem is not the law or what paper i print its the person who checks it, if they felt like working everything goes smooth, and if they didn't it will be the longest and hardest day.

i did clear out my stuff but it wasn't stopped cause of money or tax or anything else, 1 of my items is a camouflaged shorts i say again SHORTS and the person that stopped it said i had to bring a paper from the ministry of defense and say that those are civilian clothing and has nothing do to with the military .... i stood there looking at him and wondering what do i tell him are u stupid or did you fall on your head when you where born .... so i asked him a simple Q did u ever see a military personal wearing a camouflaged short ?? he said no i asked him what is the camouflaged color that is around he said BROWN i said fine those are GREEN and not any green ... green that have been washed more than 6 million time and the color is gone ... he said well sorry can't help you ... i said would it make it easy for you if i threw it away and you'd clear my stuff he said yes i was like fine ..... and before i did one of his co-workers saw everything and heard it he came and spoke to him and he said ok you can clear it .....

so Naseem its has nothing to do with any law in this country :))
