At some point I'm going to have to return to England (Via Thailand) from Australia (BOO) and I've just thought about the two HDs (2TB & 1TB) of Films & TV series I have accumulated / Dloaded in my time travelling, Anyone know if customs have history of checking HDs & questioning where the content came from or whatever?

Heard about cameras being checked but hds..don´t think so because - not THAT easy to check and they have no suspicions, I guess..they probably want to know where you bought them and if you didn´t buy them in the UK/EU they screw you over on that one :smash:

What you mean? They are both brought in oz, I normally have all my leads (Laptop charger, HD leads, phone charger etcetc) separate anyway.

Edit: lol both answered my question in your post above.

Not far off that amount in AUD. My 2TB HD cost me $275 alone. 1TB was $100.
You can bring in other goods worth up to £390 without having to pay tax and/or duty.

If you bring in any single item worth more than your allowance, you must pay duty and/or tax on the full item value, not just the value above the allowance. You also cannot group individual allowances together to bring in an item worth more than the limit.

S´all good then. I can only speak of my experience with german customs, those fuckers like to make money on the fly :teeth:
