I would not declare it and act in a nonchalant manner... but that might not work coz when they x-ray your bags they will notice it for sure...

So you come to a chat site asking for advise on how to become a smuggler. What kind of loser are you?

Watch any Hindi picture starring Ajit. He will tell you "Sona kitni aasaani se samuggal kiya jaata hai".

Why gold - if you are going to smuggle, why not smuggle drugs instead? More money in that.

Re: Traveling with gold....

With that kind of money you can buy your own private gold mine in Bihar ... why you westing your life in desert?

You can come and go as you please ... bringing whatever to your heart's delight ... India is a free country ... last time I checked in dictionary. Sachinbahi can bring in huge Ferrari and not pay any taxes ... email him ... I am sure he can help you out.

Re: Traveling with gold....

you should get a dog and get him a sone ka patta...pau killo ka patta mast gale mein...you can easily travel with him and he doesnt have to pass thru x-ray either... but seriously for pau kilo gold, you just have to pay like INR 6k.

http://www.immihelp.com/nri/india/travel/import.html

works out much cheaper than a dog.
