Wikipedia has an article on all plugs used in all countries, with a table for comparison. Or for a picture version (albeit comparing them to Australian plugs, but at least it shows you) - this will show you what they look like. Basically, international outlet/plug types A and C, and they run at 220V/50Hz. Coming from the Netherlands, you will need an ...

As long as you declare everything you bought overseas and/or cannot produce evidence they were purchased in India, you won't have a problem. Note, however, you will probably owe import duty & taxes for those items you take home that didn't originate there. For an example of what you may expect to pay, you could try this calculation page. Also note that ...

Promoting a comment to an answer If you're not in a huge rush, I'd suggest you skip flying, and take the train. Well, train + train + ferry.

Disclaimer Please note that what you are doing is illegal, as you are effectively importing goods in the country, trying to pass them as personal items which you had on you when you left the USA. This is clearly not the case as you said you bought the item in India and are bringing it in with you in the USA. Moreover, the fact that you put the box in the ...

You can bring in merchandise up to a value of $300 by air or sea or $150 by land. Technically, bringing in merchandise with an industrial or commercial purpose is prohibited. You need to fill out form OM-2132. For the laptop you are importing you can pay by credit card (Mastercard, Cabal or Visa only) but there is a 15% surcharge. The authorities may request ...

The TSA Restriction The restriction you mentioned does not apply to all flights towards all destinations. It is a new rule which is slowly being implemented across continents. If I am not mistaken the US were the first, followed by UK. I could not find any official reference covering the status by country. All I stumbled upon were local online newspaper ...
