I'm sure this isn't much of a concern, it doesn't appear to be a hassle anywhere else on the planet, but just in case........I'm arriving in Thailand next week and took a look at the customs allowances here http://internet1.cus...ivinginthailand and here http://internet1.cus...arnet/atacarnet
Now, I've traveled all over on holiday and not bothered with Carnets (not paid any attention to them before because my old equipment wasn't worth that much!) but my setup now must be getting on for around £10K sterling new. So I'm wondering if a Carnet might be needed to avoid import duties and such like. I am on holiday and not business and the list of Carnet equipment includes professional equipment for the press and cinematographic equipment (it's a 5DM2 + lenses + Subal etc)
Given the low 10,000BHT (£200 sterling) of allowance before declaration for combined personal effects I would have thought that almost every tourist with a camera would need a Carnet !
Would I need a Carnet, does anyone bother? Am I missing something here and worrying for no reason?
