I will soon be travelling on dependant visa with my wife to Berlin and I would like to take my CPU (assembled PC cabinet with keyboard and mouse) with me. Is it possible? visiting Germany for the first time and will be seeking long term residence (also job).

Machine is big can't fit in hand bag and will be a luggage itself. What kind of problem I will be facing, this will attract any duty?

    @lambshaanxy Seems to be in the other direction. – Relaxed Jan 17 at 10:18

    Are you moving (i.e. taking up residence) to Berlin? Going back there after a trip to India (i.e. you are already a resident)? Or simply visiting? – Relaxed Jan 17 at 10:19

    The three problems are airport security, airline baggage rules, and possible import duties. Is it small enough to fit into hand luggage or does it have to go into checked luggage? I wouldn't trust the average airport luggage handler with a pc unless it is properly packaged. – o.m. Jan 17 at 12:29
  • @Relaxed Whoah! My bad, this may be the first question ever on this site about Customs out of India. – lambshaanxy Jan 17 at 13:02
  • Will you be bringing the computer back to India at the end of your trip? – Gerard Ashton Jan 17 at 17:24
