    We are planning to visit Paris & Switzerland in October and stay in apartments. Is this a good time to visit, considering weather, public holidays etc. Are we allowed to bring ready-made spices and podis, pappadams etc. to use there or is it very strict like in the US.

    Thanks

    Hi Shrikamu,

    October in both countries will be windy, rainy and wet. It's autumn:( Yes you can bring in food items provided they're in reasonable quantities. Usually even if they stop you, you can explain that you're on a tourist visit and hence carrying for personal use they'd not fuss.

    I second the above poster.. You can even expect some early showers of snow.. So please do carry appropriate clothings.

    As far food items, you can bring in as much as your airline baggage allowance permits. I have brought so many items like pickles, papad, powders and still bring in, and never once have been stopped/asked.

    Have a pleasant trip!:)
