Customs Department clarifies Customs Procedure for Air Passengers

BANGKOK, 17 July 2019 (NNT) – The Customs Department has issued a document clarifying the customs procedure for air passengers arriving in Thailand.

According to the procedure, items that are exempted from duty include passengers’ accompanying belongings that are worth no more than 20,000 baht.

If their belongings exceed 20,000 baht, they are liable for duty and taxes. If air passengers’ belongings are for commercial purpose, even if they are valued at less than 20,000 baht, they remain liable for duty and taxes.

Passengers can declare their belongings at the Goods to Declare channel, also known as the Red channel. A permit is required for restricted goods. Customs officers at the Goods to Declare channel will then determine duties and taxes of different items.

For instance, handbags are subject to a 20% rate, watches 5%, and cosmetics and belts 30%, together with the 7% value-added tax (VAT).

The method of calculation is as follows:
produce price x import tax rate = import duty
(product price + import duty) x 7% = VAT
Total tax payment = import duty + VAT

If passengers are not treated fairly by customs officers or witness irregularities during the customs procedure, they can call the Customs Hotline at 1332. For more information, air passengers can email the Customs Department at [email protected]
