How do I take a laptop thru the custom in Nepal so that I do not have to pay the tax as I'm going to return the laptop with me when I leave Nepal? Any suggestions?

If you're bringing back your laptop , you do not have to pay anything, they might just make a note in your PP.. good luck !

. "tip" the customs people Rs. 500 (you have to haggle) or $10. i've had to do that twice. it was a really bad experience. i thought they would write it in my passport so that they can make sure i bring it back. but they wouldn't do it! they said they would charge me customs duty of Rs. 18,000 if I went through the official documentation process - even if I was bringing it back. i knew it was bullshit but couldn't really argue much more, just wanted to get out of the airport, you know. although, i hear there is a new rule now that says students can take in one laptop for free, i.e without customs duty.

although i am going next month leaving to ktm next month for the summer and im taking my laptop, my xbox 360, digital camera, cell phone all in my backpack. a lot of electronics for a college student so i am a little worried that they might harrass me at the kathmandu airport.

Oh don't worry about it. I took my laptop, video camera, digital camera and a cell phone all in my backpack and the custom officers didn't even bother to ask me what I have. In case if they ask you, just tell them you have nothing special and they won't trouble you further. Good luck

. oh they are proactive alright. they say they want some "tea-expense". in my case, i was just carrying the laptop with me, so they actually stopped me.

. on another occasion, i have managed to take in a camcorder (it wasn't a small one) without any hassle. just walked straight through, nobody stopped me or asked me any questions. i felt like i could have smuggled anything through there, ehehe.
