Hello everyone, I sort of have a predicament. I want to bring home alcohol (1 bottle, less than a liter, bought from the airport while waiting for my flight) from Japan as a gift to my boss, however I have an odd layover in Korea where I will need to transfer from one airport to another. Here is my flight itinerary going home:
My questions are:
1) Will the transfer affect my ability to bring home alcohol from Japan to the USA? What is the procedure for declaring alcohol to customs, or do I even need to do that?
2) Will I need to go through customs several times? I am concerned that it is not a simple layover and that I have to leave Gimpo Airport and go to Incheon... which means checking in my baggage again. If not, when should I fill out a customs form?
3) Will I incur multiple fees through this route? For example, will I have to pay taxes going through Customs in Gimpo, then again when going through Incheon, then again when arriving in the USA?
It's all incredibly confusing to me, so I would really appreciate some help!
