  • bringing food items to USA

    Hi all,

    My parents are planning to come to the US for the first time on visitors visa. Are they allowed to bring curry powder and some indian home made snacks? Should they declare it in the customs form? Is it better to bring in the hand / carry on baggage or check in baggage? Have the customs ppl ever checked anyones baggage and caught them for bringing food items. What kind of food items can we bring and what is not permitted? Please let me know ur experiences.

    Thanks

    They can bring that.

    Does not have to declare anything.

    What they can't bring is fresh fruits/vegetables etc.

          yeah !! you should be able to get tinned, Factory sealed stuff. Once I was caught for not declaring the food. I was having pickles. The officer got me and asked me the reason for not declaring, I said,' Sorry Sir, i thought only raw foods like, fruits and vegetable should be declared, as I am carrying cooked food I dint declare!!". Officer said thats wrong, ANYTHING THAT GOES INTO THE MOUTH SHOULD BE DECLARED. He left me after that, he wanred me to declare next time. thats it.

            I have never been too excited about Indian food in Melbourne. However, with all the new Indian fusion places opening up it is very exciting. It
