    custom duty

    Computers are taxed @ 5% so ensure that you can show your puchase receipt AND hold on to the duty-paid receipt they give you for any future visits. Food, hmmm....can't say for sure, but depends hugely on the customs officer you encounter; they may not even open your baggage. Here's a thread from earlier about duty of all kindsa items.

    Hope this helps!

    duty

    Apparently you are only assessed a duty IF you are staying longer than 3 months, or something like that. If you're only there a short time then you are considered a tourist and can forego the taxes. You think every parents coming to viist their kid at SGU pays a duty on their digital camera? My parents didn't and they were just here a few weeks ago.
