Customs Regulations in Thailand
If you arrive in Thailand by air, or by rail at Padang Besar, you will be given a customs declaration form and a sheet detailing the regulations. You should complete the form and hand it to the customs officer as you leave the airport arrivals hall. If you enter Thailand by rail, customs officers will board the train to carry out their duties. Customs formalities are straightforward, and the officers are polite and efficient.
You are allowed to bring in 200 cigarettes or 250 gr. of tobacco, 1 litre of spirits, plus a reasonable amount of perfume. If you are bringing in prescription drugs ask your doctor for a note detailing the drugs you are taking.
Fire-arms, pornography and narcotics are strictly prohibited, and the penalties for drug trafficking are severe.
Antiques may only be taken out of Thailand with a certificate from the Fine Arts Department in Bangkok. A reputable dealer will be able to offer advice on the practicality of obtaining this certificate. Buddha statues old or otherwise, may not be taken out of the country. (This does not apply to the very small items found in gift shops).
