Headed down to Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina next week with the Minister of War & Finance to keep her company during the international portion of her MBA.
On the "off chance" that I find a nice Explorer I languishing in an AD in either country, how does the Duty work from country to country?
I get the US version-- whack $800 off the price, then about 3% afters. Ok. Fair enough. (and I go through Customs sometimes up to 10 times a month for my job-- I'm NOT going to take a chance on making life difficult in the future by not declaring.)
Where I'm off the rails is if I go from Country A to Country B to the US.
i.e. I buy the watch in Chile. Then, fly to Argentina for a week. Then, fly to the US.
What do I need to do (if anything) with Argentinian Customs? Since I'm just transiting and not staying or selling the watch, I'd like to think I'm off the hook. But, if I'm wrong, it would factor into any purchasing decisions.
I've searched teh interwebz, but my Google-fu is weak in this situation.
A little help?
