My colleague and I will go to exhibit at exhibition in Tashkent in April. Since the cost of bringing in and bringing out of exhibit items through Uzbekisthan ‘s customs are very expensive, we’d like to bring commercial samples (automotive parts like lighting) ourselves in the luggage. We will travel by Uzbekistan Airways. I think two of us can have 40 kgs of luggage and we plan to bring the max limit of 40 kgs.
My concern is of course the difficulty of customs staff at Tashkent airport with these samples. I read earlier in the forum about harassment tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293967-i9281-k359… what should we do if we were stopped by the customs staff? Any comments would be highly appreciated.
PS. We exhibit at many shows worldwide and usually they do not have problems with samples if you are an exhibitors. But for Uzbekistan, I’m afraid it will be different.
