I am hoping somebody out there who has already been through this can clarify this a little for me. My fiance is moving here on the 28th (WAHOO!!) and he is bringing our wedding rings with him (they were purchased by him in the UK). Our question is does he have to claim those with US Customs and what else would he have to claim? I searched their website and cannot find an answer....just more confusion. I would deeply appreciate any information or clarity I can get on this subject. Thanks!!!

it was funny cause I had to ask the AA stewardess if I have to declare my jewelries (most are fashion accessories and a real gold necklace) with US customs...she said NO...and so she was right. All my valuable belongings was on my hand carry bag though.

GG - to be honest I doubt very much that they would have a problem - unless they are worth like $10k or something... Jeremy brought our rings over so I could see them then took them back and so I really don't think you need to declare them unless they have a really high commercial value :) Not sure what that limit would be though...

I wonder what constitutes 'cultural property'? I'm guessing things of heritage value...?

The Very Secret Diary of Legolas Son of Weenus - by Cassandra Claire

Day One: Went to Council of Elrond. Was prettiest person there. Agreed to follow some tiny little man to Mordor to throw ring into volcano. Very important mission - gold ring so tacky.

Day Six: Far too dark in Mines of Moria to brush hair properly. Am very afraid I am developing a tangle.

Orcs so silly.

Still the prettiest.

Day 35: Boromir dead. Very messy death, most unnecessary. Did get kissed by Aragorn as he expired. Does a guy have to get shot full of arrows around here to get any action? Boromir definitely not prettier than me. Cannot understand it. Am feeling a pout coming on.

Frodo off to Mordor with Sam. Tiny little men caring about each other, rather cute really.

Am quite sure Gimli fancies me. So unfair. He is waist height, so can see advantages there, but chunky braids and big helmet most off-putting. Foresee dark times ahead, very dark times.

Yep you're on the right lines. So don't be trying to sneek in things like a little bit of Elgin Marble, an original Magna Carta or the Mona Lisa, or perhaps a dusty old mummy, a shrunken head :blink: or a carved elephant tusk - unless it happens to have been in your family for donkey's years, passed down to you by ancient ancestors, and you can totally prove it! :thumbs:

If you want the legal stuff, this US Gov page all about cultural property protection is a good start.

All the best,

Sheila

Thank you all for your help! I didn't think he would have to, but wanted to make sure. When I tried to look it up on the US Customs website, it just caused more confusion. I am so ready for Gareth to get here and then I can worry about something else.....AOS! EEKK!

He will not need to claim the rings. When we came to the US. I carried money + jewellery. We did not need to claim it. Each individual can carry valuables (including money) upto $10,000.. Hope this helps.

If you're moving here with a visa, you don't need to declare anything. All your personal possessions and household goods are tax and duty free (execpt items previously posted as prohibited without special permit)


divorced - April 2010 moved back to Ontario May 2010 and surrendered green card

PLEASE DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE ME OR EMAIL ME. I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT CURRENT US IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES!!!!!
