    Hi,

    My mom is planning to come in next weekend to USA from AirIndia flight. I am just wondering about packing for chilli powder, Spice powders,some home made sweets. Are the authorities allow us to bring them to US? I told my mom to do USA packing to pickels. Is it nessasary for the spice powders too. Please give me some tips and advice regarding packing.

    Hi,
    No need to do USA packing for spice powders
    even for home made sweets also no need of USA packing.
    don't bring laddoo kind of sweets(round balls) as it is
    cruch them & bring.

    for pickels USA packing is must.
    Hope thi shelps u

    U must be very happy to welcome ur mother no..
    ENJOY

    You can bring as much as you want provided its in weight specified for the airline. Bear in mind not to have too heavy bag for carry on baggage. It will be easy for you when in transit if the carry on is not too heavy.Make sure you pack spices and pickles in 2 -3 layers as they tend to break and leak. My good saree was full of oil last time when I travelled from india to US.And when packing heavy things like cooker dont put it in one suitcase. put the lid in one and the bottom in other. iN that way the weight wont be much. Also if u can bring as many gaskets and whistles of the cooker if you bring .Good luck and enjoy the flight.
