What will happen if i get stuck in the German customs with Kamagra and no prescription?
I'm not an expert, but my educated guess would be that it depends on quantity. I would bet they would just confiscate a small amount and perhaps be more concerned if you're trying to bring 1000's of pills in. Have you considered using one of the online pharmacies found here to have them ship it to the place in Germany you'll be staying? Just be sure to order far enough in advance that it will get there on time.
They will confiscate them without a doubt. Even if its personal amounts. Bring a prescription (if its legit)
I fly all of the time for work and I bring my medicine with me everytime. Most times, I just bring my pills in my legit prescription container and throw it in the x-ray bin. Not once has anyone went through the container or inspected the pill bottle. I'm not saying that you should try to bring meds without a script on a flight, but I have never had the slightest issue with a legit prescription.
Of course legally you need to have a prescription with you if you are traveling abroad, but in practice i've never been asked by customs officials anything about it when i've carried prescriptions with me. I usually just stick them in my carry-on bag and they send it through the x-ray machine and that's it.
Although I've never tried to carry an ED drug to Germany, so can't really say 100% what will happen.
The german legal system is not a common law system, therefore the laws should be clearly defined on the books with very little deviation or confusion. I would image carrying a non-controlled substance would raise no cause for concern, assuming that it is not controlled in Germany.
Ha ha you need to consut a German attorney for absolute certainty, or German Customs. Do you read German? It probably states the rules on their web page.
@steve032 You've never had anyone check the bottle? I'm telling you I know the perfect way to hide illicitly obtained prescription medicine. You can guess if you read between the lines. They'd have to be awfully precise in their check for it to be discovered, and if you have 10 prescriptions, would they even bother checking them all? Probably not.
Whenever I travel, I make sure to put my "prescription" pills in with my Vitamins, I put them all in one container, so if I ever get asked I can say yes I do have a prescription, but I just put all of my pills in one container to make it easier to pack. They understand.
It is best to bring a prescription or kinda be sneeky about it and if you have a extra prescription bottle with you--put them in it and do not declare anything.
No, I've never had anybody check the bottle. I'm talking about maybe 25 round trip flights in the past 3-4 years. However, if anyone were to check, it would not be a problem since it was indeed a legit prescription. I am weary of taking anything illegal on flights, mostly because all of the flights are work related. However, they now have installed the "body scans" at many of the big airports that allows them to see anything and everything underneath your clothes. I stepped through one at Newark Airport and Detriot in the last month. These are relatively new (past few months), and from what I've read, somewhat controversial (since they can essentially see you naked). Not everybody goes through these scans at these airports, it's "random".
Just to add my two cents and personal experience - I have never had an issue with any customs official even blinking at my meds. 4 trips abroad, always carrying benzos in a legit pharmacy bottle. I never declared them, and still did not have a problem. Again, that is just my experience. A bit more research on the laws of country you are entering is probably your safest bet. Call them American Embassy in that country to get the most reliable information!
This is probably a dumb thing to do but I normally go to walgreens before I go abroad. I will get some cheap vitamins, off brand over the counter pain medicine, heartburn med, etc. Some of these items you can take the lid off and still leave the tamper resistant seal on. dump out the vitamins, etc and put the pills that you don't have a prescription for in the empty new bottles. works like a charm every time they never pay any attention to them. Also throw your underwear on top of your toiletry bag and get some skivvies or tighty whities and rub something brown on the crotch where it looks like your underwear has skid marks. The inspector will not even look past the undies with the fake skid marks.
@joeydixiedaisey and @shilly_shillson I agree that's a funny way to do it. I've always thought the best way was to throw them into supplement bottles or herbal bottles, which they ignore too.
But really, you're rolling the dice there. They could easily pop that lid off and would instantly recognize something other than tylenol or aspirin or motrin, which are ubiquitous to the point that everyone has seen them at some time in their life. It would look highly suspicious if they were small, round and pink and had "oc" stamped on them, lol.
But I thought of a way around that. All you really need to do is find a bottle with a seal that's not the foil but the paper kind, and then carefully peel it off, dump out the contents, put in your contents, and then sparingly use superglue to reseal the paper. Another method which would provide an extra layer of protection against inspection, but which would be tedious and a pain in the ass, is to find some aluminum foil or material as close to the seal material as possible, put the bottle on it upside down, carve your circle with a razor blade, repeat the earlier process of dumping contents out and put yours in, then re-apply the new "seal" carefully using super-glue. A quick glance at it and it should look like an un-opened seal. If they stared at it a while, they'd probably realize that something was wrong with the seal, that it didn't look right somehow. Then they'd realize that it was aluminum foil carefully cut in a circle, and not a genuine seal. But if you can get it super-glued back on without any glue leaking out onto the bottle, you should be alright. And they're probably not even going to pop off the bottle top, much less inspect the seal, for a bottle of tylenol, am I right?
If you want to see some really creative ways of smuggling drugs, however, just go the dea.gov website. People have used toys, baby diapers, dirty baby diapers, neural implants, electronics devices, ordinary toothpaste containers, everything. Oh, and just kidding about the neural implants. They're not that sophisticated---yet.
I was watching this video on CNN last night about how sophisticated drug smuggling has become on the border. They have coordinated plans now where if they're caught, they haul ass to the Rio Grande and drive straight into the river as fast as they can. Then, smuggler "recovery teams", with all the diving gear necessary, take a boat over and recover the product. (Lose the 30k truck, but recover 800k worth of product, not a total loss).
I've flown with prescription meds many times and never had an issue, although I did keep them in a prescription bottle with my name and information on it.
On the body scanners at the airport. A couple of weeks ago there was an article of someone who was arrested in Atlanta for having a couple Hydro's in his pocket. Even when he proved he had a valid subscription he was issued a misdemeaner as it was not transported legally.
Use your vials, the TSA doesn't have time to be checking Lipitor or even advil. I have never had a problem domestically or internationally.
I've flown to many countries in the EU, with my Rx drugs in their original bottles or a pill case. Never had a problem, never even had anyone ever ask me about them.
Just remember when travelling abroad that you are subject to the laws of the country you are in. You really need to be careful at look at some of them as they can be much stricter than the US/UK. I am fairly sure that Germany would be in line, but I know a few coutries that are not.
I have not traveled in a while but what about putting a plastic seeled bag in a bottle of shampoo?
I have now traveled several times between my home country and other EU countries and have never had a real check of my bag yet. Sure they have checked my laptop for good knows what, rubbed some cotton balls on the keyboard and put it in a huge machine. They even checked my toilet bag but only for liquids so I'm not that worried anymore. Funny story though when I went through the security check at Schiphol airport, Amsterdam and the asian fellow before me got stopped for having hand cuffs in his hand luggage. He got pretty red in the face when he got a telling-off from the security
