    Re: bangalore airport customs experiencee

    Well, it has been sometime since I have been to Bangalore. I took direct flight to B'lore twice. I did not face any problems. Customs have become quite lenient in India in recent years. Have no idea regarding the number of cameras.
    Best of luck.

    I went to bangalore last july I had 2 cameras. I did not have any problem. If asked just say for personal purpose. I think there is some amount under which you can take things. Check on singapore airlines website.

    Hi Asks,

    Do not worry about the customs in BLR.I have travelled To n Fro from US and Europe and carried lots of stuff,but Customs at Bangalore arent too much of a problem though.Infact they r 100 times better than Mumbai.And I presume,there are revised rules on the Amount of Stuff U can get into a country,where the Slab has increased and Ur cams wudnt cross that slab,am sure.

    Take Care,
    Savi

    Never had any problems at <st1:City><st1:place>Bangalore</st1:place></st1:City> airport – fast and easy, but always something comes up in Mumbai. There those cheeky $*%”&; will never miss a chance for some extra money!
    Luckily now I can get direct flight to <st1:City><st1:place>Bangalore</st1:place></st1:City> so no more loosing money in Mumbai :2thumbsup:
