  • Excuse me, how do I decide whether to go through the red or the green channel?

  • Have you got any evidence of the cost – an invoice or a bill which shows that you paid for it?

  • Yes, I have the bill. Here it is.

Dialogue 11
Passenger 1: Hello.

Passenger 2: Hi.

Passenger 1: Do you know which channel to go through?

Passenger 2: No, let’s ask a customs officer.

Passenger 1: Excuse me. Could you tell me which channel to go through?

Customs officer: If you’ve got anything to declare you go through the red channel. If you haven’t got anything to declare you go through the green channel.

Passenger 1: How do I know if I have anything to declare?

Customs officer: Are you staying in Britain for more than six months?

Passenger 1: No.

Customs officer: Well, the amount of goods you can bring in without paying duty depends on where you bought them. You can have 200 cigarettes, 1 litre of spirits, 2 litres of wine and presents worth 28 pounds if you bought them in a country not in the EU. If you bought them in an EU country you can have 300 cigarettes, 1 and a half litres of spirits, four litres of wine and presents worth 120 pounds.

Passenger 1: Right. I have 1 and a half litres of brandy and 3 litres of wine that I bought in Italy. I don’t have any presents. That means I don’t have anything to declare.

Customs officer: That’s right. You can go through the green channel.

Passenger 2: I’ve got only 200 cigarettes and a litre of whisky that I bought on the plane, but I’ve got a camera that I bought in Italy that cost 200 pounds. It’s a present for a friend of my father’s.

Customs officer: Then you must go through the red channel.

Passenger 2: Thank you.

Passenger 1: Shall we meet at the airport shop?

Passenger 2: Sure.

Passenger 2 goes to the red channel.

Customs officer: Have you got any spirits, wine or tobacco in excess of duty-free allowance?

Passenger 2: No, I’ve got this bottle of whisky and these cigarettes.

Customs officer: That’s all right. Have you got any presents that you intend to leave in Britain?

Passenger 2: Yes, I’ve got this camera – it costs 200 pounds. I bought it in Italy.

Customs officer: Have you got a receipt for the camera?

Passenger 2: Yes. Here it is.

Customs officer: Thank you. If you wait a minute, I’ll tell you how much duty you have to pay on it.

Passenger 2: Thank you.

AT THE CUSTOMS
Every day many people travel throughout the world either on business or for pleasure. Those who cross the frontier of the state have to go through customs.

The customs service is designed for carrying out customs control to regulate import and export of goods and currency. The place where customs or duties are paid is called a customs house.

Every country has its own customs legislation, and if you are going abroad you are supposed to learn the rules of leaving and entering the foreign state. To be on the safe side, you should know what is allowed or prohibited to be brought in or taken out. Before packing your luggage consult the prohibited articles list which is available at the customs.

Among the articles that are prohibited for taking out of the country in accordance with customs legislation of all the states you will find works of art, different types of prints, manuscripts, valuable musical instruments, cancelled securities, numismatics, stamps and other articles of artistic, historical and cultural value.

Though strict prohibition applies to antiques, you may be allowed to take some original painting or drawing out provided you got a special licence for it and paid duties.

The list of prohibited commodities both for bringing in and taking out also includes arms, explosives, military equipment and narcotics.



Everybody leaving for a foreign country ought to know that there can be articles liable to duty and duty free. As a rule, personal belongings, gifts and souvenirs (the cost of the latter must not exceed a certain limit stipulated by the customs regulation) are duty free. Money not declared and therefore concealed from the customs control is liable to confiscation as smuggling. Prohibited or restricted articles though declared are usually detained, and the traveller can collect them on his way back.

When the passenger enters or leaves the country, he must fill in an entry or exit declaration which is to be produced to the customs officer. The passenger is to fill in his name, citizenship, country of residence, permanent address, purpose and duration of his visit in block letters. He must also declare all dutiable articles.

To make a trip to most countries every traveller must have a visa, single, multiple or transit, which is issued-by the foreign Embassy or Consulate. The visa may be prolonged in case of necessity, but the time for which it is valid must not expire, otherwise the traveller will not be allowed to leave the country. The overseas passport is also necessary. All the documents are carefully studied by the customs officer.

To go through customs means to have your luggage inspected by customs men. The traveller puts his bags and suitcases on the moving conveyer belt for checking. To prevent smuggling, modern methods and techniques have been developed which help customs officers examine the inside of the luggage. TV-cameras and monitors are installed everywhere at the customs house. When the passenger puts his hand luggage on the conveyer belt, special monitors are scanning the enclosure. They are able to detect everything, even if it has been concealed in the very secret corner. Customs men know from experience the exact places of concealment of goods. It may be a double bottom or cover of the suitcase, a hollowed book, an inside pocket, a tooth-paste tube, a stick; even toys and dolls can be used for that. Customs officers are trained to recognize travellers who are carrying illegally and they can prevent smuggling. The smuggling of drugs has increased a great deal in recent years and has become a world problem. Customs men in different countries supply one another with helpful information.

In the United Kingdom there is a system of red and green symbols in operation at big airports. If you have nothing more than the allowances and no prohibited or restricted goods or goods for commercial purpose, go straight through the channel indicated by the green symbol unless the officer on duty asks you to stop.

If you have more than the allowances or if you carry prohibited or restricted goods or goods for commercial purpose, go to the channel indicated by the red symbol.

So, if you follow the customs instructions and you do not break any law, you will enjoy your trip abroad.
