Even if they've got the shop tags on?



They get passed through at whatever you declare unless it is too low !


So the good thinking Aunt Peabrain, declares 2 t-shirts at Chf 100.-- each, just in case they get lost and you can try and claim unexistant insurance, go through at this price.She meant well but it is unfortuantely expensive !!


If she sent a Rolex through at say USD 50.-- then this would be increased to a full shop price and you would be charged accordingly.



If it was a "Thailand Rolex" then you have a further problem with importing counterfeit goods. The Swiss don't like counterfeit as they have a high proportion of luxury goods makers who provide a valuable income for the country and so they are protected against couterfeits .
