10 common items that are prohibited in customs

In our imagination, travels are connected with new impressions, visits to different countries and souvenirs that we bring from there. At the same time, the brain somehow completely forgets about such an important part of the trip as customs control and border crossing. There is a fairly extensive list of prohibited goods for import and export, common to many countries, but it happens that some things that are quite usual for us cannot be transported across the border of a particular state.

Nigeria and water

Customs control in this country will not miss the tourists carrying with bottled mineral water.

Plastic bottles

The official explanation for this is rather vague, but it seems that it was done to sell guests bottled water from local producers at inflated prices.

There is no bubble gum in Singapore

Rather, it is not in the public domain, and you can buy chewing gum only at a pharmacy and on doctor's prescription. True, it is not clear under what disease it is prescribed.The import ban is associated with exceptional street cleanliness and heat.

Gum shoes

In the heat, "gum" sticks tightly, and you have to pretty much tinker to remove it.

To Panama without croissants

The Panamanian authorities are very concerned about the figures of their inhabitants, so they banned the importation of pastries in any form into the territory of the country.

Croissant basket

Despite the fact that local baked goods are freely sold in Panama.

Vitamins in Peru

If the inspection of personal belongings of the arriving passenger reveals the presence of vitamins and other dietary supplements in the baggage, you will have to pay a considerable fine, and jars with useful pills will be taken away.

Tablets and capsules

They are motivated by the fact that under their guise you can smuggle illegal drugs and substances into the country. Therefore, tourists will have to pre-consume the necessary rate of vitamins, so that in a foreign land not to suffer from their lack.

“Hot” Malawi residents

Despite the fact that there is a very friendly population, the people of Malawi have become a wall to protect their own territory from the influx of aphrodisiacs that perfidious tourists can carry.

Road signs

It seems that the local population is already distinguished by enviable attractiveness and does not need additional stimulation.

Wooden toys of Italy

No matter how hard you try to make your own child happy, but you cannot hand him a radio-controlled machine made abroad in this country.

Radio control jeep

Customs control will not allow toys across the border that are not made of wood. So no jeeps, only local "Ferrari" and "Lamborghini."

Brazilian textbooks

Education in Brazil is under the strictest control, which is why it is not possible to import any educational literature produced abroad.

Stack of books

There are no discrepancies and other teaching methods, only own, verified and approved by the Ministry of Education of the state.

Write pens

One of the rather strange customs bans is in Tunisia. It is forbidden to bring pencils here.

Set of pencils

At the same time, there are no restrictions on the use of pens, markers, crayons, and any other means of writing.

Problems "bespectacled"

Uruguay can not carry points. Initially, this ban was associated with the influx of an incredible number of Chinese fakes of foreign brands, which literally flooded the stores and opticians.

Girl in glasses

Now, customs control restricts the importation of shipments of this product, so that your personal eye protection at the border crossing will not be affected.

Only local sorcerers

In Malaysia, you will not be allowed to bring any advertising witchcraft or amulets.

Amulet with a cross

Maybe this is a kind of protection of the local market of magical services, and perhaps the local population believes only in science, and left witches in the Middle Ages.

Making a pass to another state, although it is associated with the anticipation of a quick trip, but you should not lose your head and thoughtlessly cram everything into your luggage that can fit there.

In order not to be trapped and do not lay out "extra" things from the suitcases, in advance read the goods allowed for import and export in the country where you are going.
