Hello -- I have a question about travelling internationally to Asia on vacation with my violin. I live in Los Angeles, CA USA. In October 2009, I will be travelling to Seoul, S.Korea for 10 day vacation. I would like to take my violin with me on my vacation so I can play chamber music with family and friends. Is it true that I won't have to pay any VAT or customs tax if I declare my violin upon entry into the country and bring it back with me to the USA?
(Note: I am not moving there permanently or doing a paid gig performance. I'm just on vacation)
