Thanks again for the help both of you if I get charged tax that’s fine, I just didn’t want to get into trouble, I’ve never brought brand new electrical items into the country before. I am bringing my galaxy tab so I can get away with saying it’s for my own use if needs be, not sure how comfortable I would be lying to the important looking aduana but knowing that I won’t go to jail for smuggling a disk is a huge help
This person does not work for the hotel and has never asked for anything before. The family have been saving up to pay back for the disk (not that I’d accept the money off them) so I know they’re genuine. I’m very cautious of the sob stories you hear oh too often. We’ve heard loads of the normal “my starving grandma would love that phone” “my son is ill and that iPad would make him better” so the fact that there’s a black market doesn’t surprise me!
One last question, as there are 2 of us flying, is it a 100cuc in gifts allowance (50cuc each)? Depending on the current exchange rate the disk can be either just under or just over the individual allowance.
