    Anything TV 32" and under bring in in a suitcase, anything over have it shipped in from the states. If you have the TV delivered directly to the shipper you will not have to pay sales tax in the US. When you see the prices and the quality available in the DR you'll know what I'm talking about.

    Not to hijack the thread. However is it true you can bring a up to 32" size TV without the aduana (customs) without duty?

    I'm asking because my cousin did the same thing put a 32" size lcd in a suitcase and customs saw it when the opened the suitcase and told him there is no need to hide/put it into a suitcase, and that lcd's up to 32" size are allowed. I've also seen people when going to sdq check in lcd's in the box (not hiding it) however do know the outcome.

    I would like to bring one however dont want to risk a 32" lcd breaking due to its size and how airlines handle bags.

    Thanks.

    Back of the customs declaration form says that if you are a resident you can bring gifts for up to $500 (excluding your personal items, i.e., used laptop, camera, etc.) every three months.
