    You are allowed to carry gold jewellery worth Rs.1,00,000(female passenger) n for male passengers its Rs.50,000. For gold bars you will have to pay duty. check before travelling.

    ornaments that you are wearing(coz u r using them) is ok I think. pls do check. Instead of coins if possible carry ornaments.(that way u can avoid duty). I think coins are in shortage aftr gold prices have cum down.

    They do not stop you unless wear a lot of jewelry and it is exposed - please wear a jacket to cover the jewelry on the neck & hands.

    1 or 2 bars isn't a problem but if you state that you are carrying gold in the immigration form then they will stop you.

    Also they scan the hand baggage that you carry - hence wear the jewelry & don't keep in the hand baggage. The bars keep it in the jacket pocket.

    It is extreme rarity that someone would be stopped & checked.

    Hi Danya,

    You are allowed the old jewellery you are wearing. Its better to wear the jewelleries instead of carrying them. But, even if that is high they may stop you. I carried my necklace got from India in my hand baggage and while screening it they asked me to show it to the customs officer. I told them that it is my old jewellery and they left me.

    My BIL who came from Singapore was wearing a gold chain around 100 grams and was stopped at the airport. They asked him to pay duty for it. He refused and took a long time to convince the officials.

    hai,
    this is not the right time to carry jewels.until last year,u can carry ur jewels (ofcourse ur usual wear) without paying. but now 2 of my friends who went india last month told that u have to pay for everything u carry (for every 8 grams an amount).

    thanku frnds for all your suggestions.. personally i feel that this is too much from indian customs.. do they think we get gold here for free?thats our hard earned money.. if they want to stop illegal exports of gold..then they can do something else for that.. why are they squeezing poor NRI's for 10 gram 20 gram gold????
    Does that mean we can wear a christian dior dress with a pair of dior glasses, a gucci hand bag.. a chanel shoe, a costly watch, mobile and walk away just like that.. but for holding a gold bar / gold worth 25k or less.. we should pay tax???? its really annoying.. :(
