Importing goods (not bike) to Argentina
Bike's on the way to Buenos Aires, and I went via Europe. Whilst in Europe, I'd like to pick up a few things and take them with me by airplane to South America (TAM Airlines have a very generous 2x23kg luggage allowance):
1 set of Tourance tyres, chain/sprockets and a few goodies from Touratech (chainguard, bottle holders,...).
Question now is: Am I going to be alright for customs at the airport? Or is there a maximum value I'm allowed to bring into the country.
I'm thinking: a professional photographer, for example, would bring in camera gear worth several thousand US$ anyway... so: I should be alright with my belongings, even if they're new tyres/chain...
If anything, I could show the Argentinian customs guys some pictures from the past few months/years on the road, to demonstrate that the things are my personal belongings. But of course, as long as I don't know the law (i.e. the official "maximum value") I'd be open to interpretation (and bribary).
