I am packing a motherboard, graphics card, RAM, power supply, chip, fans, SSD, and external hard drive which are ALL brand new still in their respective packages - packing them all inside my checked-in luggage. (Also a brand new PC case - which will be obviously still in its box!)
My biggest question is if I am even allowed to do this? I have bought all these as surprise gift for my husband who lives internationally.
I am coming from the UK and flying to South Africa. Do I need to declare all these items?
Will it be easier to just unpack them and wrap individually to make it seem I've used them already? Do I need to explain my new goods to security here in the UK? Is it easier to just leave them in their original packaging?
My biggest fear is that security won't be happy with something and confiscates my components that cost almost £2000 in total.
