    Basically Thailand are going to start charging a duty on items brought into Thailand over the value of 10000B.
    May effect TG's more as they tend to pack many many gifts for family are return trips...

    "Gifts prepared to give to other people, donated items, collectable items, second-hand goods, empty watch and brandname bag boxes are not considered as personal items"

    So if you say the 3 watches you have are gifts for your family or friends you are OK??? is that what it means??

    What happens if you go via KL or Sing. and buy a new laptop for say $1,000 (30,000B) are you going to be hit with the import duty and if so can you claim it back when you leave??

    I see they are including clothes in the figure as well.
