"EMAIL OF THE WEEK - Smuggling doesn't pay.

When I flew in to Suvarnabhumi Airport in early December I was stopped by a policeman after clearing Immigration and Customs and asked if I had brought in any alcohol or cigarettes. I had a gift set of 150 ml of spirits and told him so and offered to open my backpack to show him. As I was about to do so he said he believed me and let me go to continue my travels. However, in the queue when leaving Bangkok I mentioned this to a fellow countryman and he told me his tale on entry. He had bought 9 x 200 cigarettes in Dubai for his friends in Thailand and was collared on arrival by Customs at Suvarnabhumi. Since he was not in their system as a known smuggler he was given the minimum fine (he showed me the stamped paperwork), 43,065 baht! Needless to say his passport is now flagged each time on entry."

I hope Stick won't mind me cutting and pasting.

steve if you look at my link on page 1 of this thread, you can see that 4+ years ago (2009), the fine was TBH3500+/carton.

So it is no surprise that it is now 4800+.

ps I can't imagine Stickman would be concerned about referrals to his site. There must be very few readers these days - which may explain why (on my very brief reading) it seemed dominated by stories and photos of bars/bargirls. :D

I believe the limit is one litre of wine. However, I have been stopped to check for cigarettes and spirits, and they could clearly see the 4 litre wine box, and they ignored it. However, next time, who knows?
