I will arrive in India on Dec.26. Our tour requires us to pay $250 cash (not traveler's checks) in dollars (not the equivalent in rupees) upon arrival. No, we cannot send it ahead, use a credit card, etc. Yet we are not permitted to being any foreign currency into India. What is the secret of obeying the law and being able to join our tour?

India tour books I've been reading say hotels, expensive restaurants, etc. require payment in foreign currency, not rupees, not credit cards. How is that done? Are there ATMs inside India that dispense dollars, euros, etc.?

Hello, I just stumbled upon this site by chance while googling on restricted import goods and customs rules.
I am totally unaware about a lot of things about customs and this forum looks like it can answer a very important question of mine. I hope you can help me...
I am a new retailer and I want to import hi-fashion clothes, shoes (not leather), bags (not leather), beauty products, light metal/ plastic fashion jewelery/ accessories, watches and maybe few electronics for my new shop from China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and USA. So I was wondering if any of my stated goods comes under restricted items and also will I be charged customs duty when I receive my parcels and how will I be charged (ex: who will charge me and whether on per carton's weight wise).
I live in Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh and I don't know if there's a Customs Office here at all....

I am just nervous...I don't want to pay so much on import duty and shipping because ultimately that would affect the cost of my products in the shop which maybe a lot for my customers.
Any answer will be helpful and may lead me to more knowledge on import and export rules...So kindly help me on this.
Thank you.

I am a citizen of India. Just yesterday I was flying by Jet airways from Mangalore to Mumbai, carrying some frozen meat products and some fish and some cooked meat worth Rs. 500/=. I was not allowed to carry any frozen meat products from Mangalore , saying all the frozen and meat products are not allowed by any airlines since 23rd June. But recently one of our friend who came by airindian express on 30th June was allowed by cooked meat products kgs.5. How come the rules are changing for one passenger to other and airlines. If it is not allowed any meat/fish products by flights from 23rd June, how come our friend is allowed to carry meat products by air india express? Frozen meat products are allowed from Gulf but not from India.

Why airport authority is not mentioning these types rules in the ticket while booking or in the airport premises. Can anyone clarify my doubt.
