Sorry to ask but someone told me that they xray all bags there now ?

So it is now impossible to bring back 20+ bottles of wine ?

What would be the fine if I try ?

Thank you.
Yes that is correct re: The X-Ray......

I Would NOT Recommend bringing in that much wine,IF That is over the limit Also VERY Strict on Cigarettes now 1 CARTON ( 200 Cigs ) Is the MAXIMUM Allowance.......Almost Certainly get a Big Fine...IF Over you're limits...

They are getting tough at the border now, They even questioned me last time with 10 or so " Lacoste " Polo Shirts,But I Got through because it was nearly Christmas & I'd bought them as presents ....( Not to Re-Sell )
They're are signs on the Thai Side ( Coming Back in ) WARNING...." Do NOT Attempt to bring in ANY Counterfeit Goods back into Thailand "
So....................You Have been WARNED........ =; =; [-X [-X

I bet the receivers of those presents were pleased with them. I mean , there is nothing like getting a fake Lacoste polo shirt for Christmas.

OT................. \:D/

A fake Gucci bag might top that OT. 747 probably brings them in as well - perhaps 10 or so the previous Xmas. They would make 747 very popular with the Thai ladies. I don't think he'd keep any.

Whenever I see a woman with a Gucci bag in NZ, I ask myself if she is Thai. She's either a Thai with a fake bag or a Chinese woman with the real McCoy.

Thank you, maybe I should talk to the customs directly to tell them that I bought 20 bottles and want to pay tax ?

My wife went over 2 weeks ago with a couple of her girl friends on a shopping trip. She brought me back 2 bottles of Kentucky Bourbon. 1 was carried by a friend. The limit is 1 bottle per person. All bags were x-rayed. All suit cases were opened. She thought Customs agents were looking for drugs. All Thais in her group.

once again, you should not try to exceed what is allowed, admission of guilt is good when you break the law in Thailand, but wont get you a break on a bribe you will have to pay.
you can always ask customs to "not put the handcuffs on too tightly" if you intend to show up at the border with excess bottles.....

you ought to try to buy from someone that imports wine from Laos? let them pay their bribe for you?

a carton of excess cigarettes was 10,000 per person for my friends group

There are restrictions on the amounts of alcohol and tobacco products; only the following amounts may be transported into Thailand under duty free regulations:

* 250 grams of cigars or smoking tobacco, or 200 cigarettes
