Flying to the US with engagement ring.

Jump to last reply

Hey, need a bit of help..

I will be flying to the US early next month and will be proposing to my girlfriend over there. She's an american citizen and I'm not. I'm simply flying there on a tourist visa and have every intension of flying back to Hong Kong.

For some reason I'm finding it pretty hard to get a straight answer to the following question and people give me different answers all the time..

What Is the best way to bring an engagement ring through US customs once arriving in the United States?

The following thoughts came to mind... Is it considered a gift cause I'm giving it to someone? Do I have to declare it cause it's over $100USD in value and then pay a certain percentage of duty? If so, how much duty would I have to pay? Or should I just try and walk through without declaring and hope for the best?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance.
