Returning to the States from Austria with electronic equipment: What to worry about at customs?
posted by dunkadunc to law & government (7 answers total)
I'm going to be returning to the United states in a bit more than a week after a year studying abroad in Austria. What I'm worried about here is any potential problems with customs bringing electronics back to the States.
When I flew over here, I packed my laptop computer, Mac Mini and iPod Touch- and had no problems whatsoever. However, during my stay here, I've picked up an external hard drive and DSLR, and am concerned that customs (the US being what it is) will give me grief when I return.
So- Is this something I have to be concerned about, or is this a non-issue?
Bonus Question: Do I have to worry about my music backups (ca. 70GB) on the external HD? Do I have to delete my socialist and anarchist PDFs?
Thanks in advance!
