carfreak ji - I was asking B&T saab

I agree with others - his friend is taking him for a ride. If he has already carried in worth some 5-7 years worth of medicines - why is he asking for a similar quantity.

My brother was also skeptic abut carrying medicine to UAE that too Homeopathic , but in the end he ended up taking close to 500 tablets,Nobody questioned about this,but he had his prescriptions with him,but B&T's Friend might have asked for 300 no of tabs ...not 300 strips.

Medicines are okay if they are in small quantities. 300 strips is sure way to get into trouble.

Though it MUST be declared.

My experience with Dubai / UK / US is

1. You just need to put tick marks into the immigration form that says "Do you have any food item / medicine in your luggage?"
2. Baggage will be put in through X Ray again
3. If dog barks (dogs that sniff for drugs) then each and every things needs to be accounted for [Prescription for meds / Proper food labels for Namkeens / Sweets]
4. Med strips show up on scanners, for 4 - 5 strips nobody even bothers to question.

I usually carry Paracetamol / Combiflame / Ciprox (Ciprofloxacin) and declare it. No issues with one or two strips of each.

300 strips is surely "commercial" quantity. It might or might not be caught in Primary X-Ray screening (That is if you don't declare it yourself). But its simple asking for trouble.

And meds will expire in 2 - 3 years max
