    Border crossing

    What exactly can be brought over the line? I'm going down to the twin cities, in a couple of weeks, and want to go shopping. Can I bring back any sort of live goods, or is it illegal.

    Does not matter!

    Fish are ok! .. Corals are not! .. Live rock is not and all Dry goods are good

    So bascily all the good stuff you need cities permits for.. Some have brought across with no issues.. But if you get caught you can lose your car and upto 5 thousand in fines!

    I know someone who's done this quite a bit. He's brought fish on the plane and says he'll never do it again - not worth the trouble. Driving has never been a problem. He's brought back rock and fish but no corals.

    I have been told, that as long a you have receipts, there is no problems. I would not want to be coming back from floridia with ricordia. That is what I was told. You will have to pay your duties, and such, but that is it.

    The problem is, they should allow for some kind of proof that the corals have been farmed, and are not from the ocean. But how do you prove it? From what I hear, some of the workers at the border have some beautiful salt tanks at home. Not like they'd throw out the stuff they confiscate from you!! lol

    Doesnt leave much,
    Tooloud is correct I have Imported corals for some stores out here in the past and if your flying or driving you need cities permits, which are only good for a few months and cost over 200$U.S thats when I imported from Jakarta.

    A few people come over without DECLAIRING them thats fine get caught once though and have a hard time going into the states you will be checked very closly when they verify your passport believe me it will register.
    And you may get a full cavity search how would you like that :bigcry: just kidding:biglaugh2
