Re: Laptop and Notebook - Customs

I travelled back to Uk from Bodrum 21st Dec 2009. I had to open my main bag so they could check the electronics I had in there, I had taken care with packing and the electronics was tightly wrapped in cling film, there was a charger for the lappy and the modem, then they looked at my hair dryer, they opened my knitting bag with my pins and was amused that had a knitted garment too. They never said anyting about the lap top and they missed the metal nail file that was in my hand bag. I wonder if they know what they are looking for half the time. They did stop lots of folk to check their luggage.

Since this is an old post, have there been any recent changes to what electronic items can be brought into Turkey? I know about phone restrictions but what about laptops? Can more than one laptop or a laptop and a tablet be brought without problems?

Information and comments backed with recent travel experience regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Laptop and Notebook - Customs

I don't think they care about these items. I usually travel with laptop and kindle (which could easily be a tablet), if stopped it is usually for something else.

Would that something else be weed and cocaine?
Asking for a friend.

Actually one time I though I was in trouble I had about 1500 Glucosamine pills and 6 x 50 containers of wine Yeast. they did accept my explanation but as it was just after the British woman was jailed in Egypt i was worried for a while.

Thank you, have you been travelling in the last couple of months with such items?

Not since March, I took my kindle when I went back to the Uk last week, but no need for a laptop on a day trip

Re: Laptop and Notebook - Customs

When we moved to Turkey (Oct 18), I had two laptops in my suitcase, as well as other electronics (Xbox, dj controller, speakers, kindle, hard drives, bunch of stuff). I got stopped by customs officers, they'd obviously scanned my luggage and spotted that it looked suspiciously full of electronic equipment. They had a quick look, but didn't really ask any questions, just let me go through.
