How to Declare?
Departing passengers having goods to declare, or VAT-refund purchases that are required to be examined should proceed to the Customs Service Desk and make a declaration prior to check-in process.
- Note: Since boarding pass is needed in certain cases, please make sure there is enough time for the clearance procedure.
What Should be Declared?
Once the undeclared prohibited/controlled/restricted goods are detected by the Aviation Police Bureau (APB), such goods shall be confiscated or be withdrawn from the baggage by the customs pursuant to relevant regulations.
