According to Bangladesh’s Passenger Luggage Rules-2018, a passenger can carry a maximum weight of 234 grams of gold bar. However, for this, he has to inform the matter of gold by filling the prescribed form of customs as soon as he lands at the airport and pay the duty. In case of bringing a bar, a fee of Rs.2000 per 11.6 grams has to be paid. However, if anyone weighs more than 234 grams, the customs will seize the gold and the carrier.
Also, if someone crosses the Green Channel with gold without an announcement, it will be considered as smuggling. At that time he will be fined double the amount of duty and duty for evading duty. In this case, the delay in the case may take a long time to get the gold bar. However, passengers will be able to carry the gold bar easily if they pay the prescribed tariffs. If you have a gold bar, tick yes on the 10th e of the baggage declaration form and submit this form to the customs at the airport, pay the bank tax against your gold bar and show the deposit receipt to the customs authority.
In addition, a passenger can bring a maximum of 100 grams of gold ornaments without paying any duty (duty free facility). However, the number of ornaments will not be more than 12. If someone brings more than 100 grams of gold ornaments, he will have to pay a fee of around 2000 rupees per gram.
However, if the quantity of gold ornaments appears to be unusual or commercial, the customs will seize it. The seized gold ornaments were later returned after paying taxes and fines. However, if the amount of gold ornaments is found to be ‘smuggled’, then the customs will seize them and file a criminal case against the carrier.
According to the source, the biggest misuse of baggage rule is in bringing gold, powdered milk, diapers, cosmetics of famous and expensive brands. As these products are in demand in the country, a cycle is being brought freely with the benefit of baggage rule. All members of the same family can bring gold within the limits of each. But whoever has that gold must have it. If a single person has all the gold together, those golds will be considered as the gold of that single person. The gold ornaments worn on the body will be considered as included in the gold ornaments brought by that person.
