The place to worry is not Etihad airlines but customs of Dhaka Airport. Unless ofcourse you have a mama Chacha... or mamar Friend or ChaChar friend in custom.

Anyway good luck .... and if you have time .... go and visit my buddy Iajjuddin and say Hi to him.

9 cell phones? Are you mad? Without any mama chahca, they'll have a field day at the customs.

My suggestion-don't do it or carry a lot of cash.

Mobile phones, I think are taxable items. Just pay the tax. I'm sure the tax is reasonable. The other option is, of course, Mama Chacha.

Let us know how flying Etihad was like...haven't tried it yet.

... the problem with carrying taxable item is .... you cannot go through the green line.... therefore if there are not enough "mokkel" for the customs, you will be the one who will get their full attention. They will open your luggage .... review each item one by one.... will test your patience.... will look for every oportunity to hook you further..... so be prepared for a long long gruelling day ....day at the airport!!!!!


.... on the other hand if you go through the green line with 9 cell phones.... you are taking further risk... if you are caught..... expect the unexpected.

Swallow the other 2!! Just like Gold bars

If available, buying the phones from the duty free shop in BD...is it an option?

I don't know whether its too late or not.... but it may work for you.

1. Return all except two cell phones.
2. When you go back to bangladesh and all your cousin will ask you "Omio Bhaiya Omio Bhiya.... Amar jonno Ki enecho?". You will say , "Ekta shorochito Kobita ar Bukh bhora Bhalobasha."
3. Some of the them will be happy. But for the more 'nachor Banda' two, give them the cell phones.
4. If there is more than two 'nachor Banda' then buy some from local market.

Will that work? I guess not.

Omio, don't take any unnecessary risk.

IMo, You can take maximum 3. Two with you and one at luggage.

For security reasons I suggest you carry only one cell phone with you and rest in the bag.
1. Do not declare you have them in immigration. (the risk is high - You may have to explain if caught that all are for personal use, lol all 8 of them)
2. You will see mockkels roaming around for dollar/pounds who would assist you in pushing carts out of the airport. Pay 10 pounds after you get out of the airport safely.

Those mockkels (who have badges but may be off duty) will take care of everything inside the airport beside the luggage area.
3. Do it as bhoddor lok. Declare and Pay Tax.

Hey Omio, no problem in dhaka airport..i just visited dhaka and returned back. dhaka airport has been taken over by Biman bahini and tell you the truth, things are running really quick there. good behaviour and no trouble at all. Immigration and custom officers were so nice there.
good luck.

By 10 toy cell phones, keep 3 packets intact, and other 7 change with original (actually you can keep 2 in your pocket without anyone suspecting). then say you have nothing to declare. if you still get caught, say you did not know they were taxable, and keep some green bucks handy.

From your nervousness, I am sure you will get caught if you try to walk through the green line.

Do this, go to the post office, parcel the phones to your address in dhaka, then fly safely, the phone will arrive shortly while you are in dhaka. It will cost you a little, but you will have a worry free pleseant trip.
