  • Carrying Gold jewelry/gold bullion on flight to USA via London Transit

    My wife has just received her Immigrant Visa and is accompanying me to the US, from India. I am a US Citizen. We know that we can carry Gold bullion/coins into the US as long as we declare it to the Customs at the arriving airport. There is no duty involved in these items, just a declaration that you are bringing them and the amount. I also understand that if it is over $ 10,000, then we need to fill out the special form.

    However, I wanted to check if there is any Customs restriction in India on exporting these and whether there is any problem with London Customs in carrying these as a Transit passenger. We have to change airports in London for our onward flight to the US within 3 hours and so we do have to clear Customs and Immigration there, as some ground transportation is involved.

    Thank you for anyone who can help.
