Do I Have To Declare At Land Border Crossing?

Posted by barleydoggy on 15/9/2014 at 01:40

Does every single bag get searched in cars at the land border crossing? How strict is it?

I want to bring in a personal amount fruit & dried herbs into Malaysia from Thailand but I understand customs has restrictions requiring import permits etc.

Dried herbs? You know Malaysia executes drug smugglers, right?

Don't risk it - even if your herbs are just basil, why risk interrogation from customs and a heap of unpleasantness? You can buy fruit, basil and other real herbs easily in Malaysia.

I guess so, it just seems like a waste of money for not a very good reason.
