I will be traveling to Vietnam soon and may have a very good opportunity to get a good buy on some good quality Crystal Red Shrimp. I would like to return with them in my suitcase(legally). Does anyone have experience with US Customs and importing FRESH WATER SHRIMP?
Thank you.........

importing....

i travel a good bit and deal with customs on a regular basis, from my personal experience your best bet would be to package them and ship them back home. if you do want to try to bring some back in your luggage be prepared to have them taken.

Yeah I don't think bringing them back in your luggage will work. I'm pretty sure, in order to do it legally, you will have to declare them, which will require paperwork and forms similar to those that are required when you ship them. Only, with the shipping, it's probably less of a hassle.

While I don't condone it at all, I think the only way you would be able to bring them back in your luggage is by smuggling them.

See if you can find a transhipper in you area. That is how a lot of people get the battas from Thailand. It dose add some to the cost, but not as much as you would think. Thy have all the paper work, then thy ship to you or you pick up from them. Hope it works out for you.

Use a transshipping company and pay them to do their job properly.
Import enough to allow you to sell some right away and defray costs.

You were only allowed a couple of ounces of liquid before last week.
Now the rules are in flux and you can't count on anything except delays and a lot more security theater. If you don't get that term, Google security theater tsa and be prepared to weep for the cost in freedom.
