I am an Indian living in Australia as permanent resident. I intend to carry 2 laptops to India while on an official trip. 1 laptop is company one and another is personal. I am carrying personal one for getting it repaired in India.

Can I do this without the need to pay any duties?

    I bring two laptops with me all the time. As far as now, they didn't care. – Anish Sheela Apr 3 '19 at 9:29

    This duplicate does not apply because the items are only being temporarily imported, and will not remain in the country. – Michael Hampton Apr 3 '19 at 14:40

You may be able to do this, provided you will be exporting the laptops from India within a certain time.

The legal procedure is an ATA Carnet (pronounced kar-nay) Rules for acceptance differ, so you will need to check the requirements for India


The carnet would be issued to you in Australia
