    Hi All,

    I am going on a trip to Thailand in September and plan on bringing a lot of
    print film (40+ rolls) into Thailand. I have seen on a few sites relating to
    Thailand that only a few rolls are allowed in without having to pay import
    tax (NB the film has tax already paid when I purchased it here in
    Ireland...or more correctly via the web into Ireland).

    Any info as to whether or not this is true?

    I have contacted the Thai Tourist authority but have so far not received a
    response.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Regards,

    Simon

    Thanks for the response. I suppose I am being a bit paranoid ;-)

    Best wishes

  3. Remember that Thai custom people can be a bit rough sometimes. I think that
    you can buy every any type of film in Thailand (I'm 100% that you can get it
    in Bangkok) so I don't see why you should risk it. There are lots of stuff
    you can't bring in to the country and I think you should respect that. There
    are even more things you shouldn't bring OUT from the country :) :)

    Anyway, I wish you a VERY pleasant trip to land of thousand smiles. I've
    been there twice and I want to go there once more (or twice.....) . Mail me
    if you wanna ask me something about it.

    Yes, like Robert said, there are tons of different films that you can
    purchase while in Thailand. As I said, I brought about 30 rolls with me and
    had to buy more while there (for a 90 day trip). Hope you enjoy your trip
    too! CD
