I'm a Hindu looking to travel to Korea for a few weeks. I was wondering if I would be able to carry some vibuthi (holy ash), applied on the forehead after prayer, across customs. I heard that due to the way it looks it could possibly warrant some trouble with the customs and thus, I am worried about it. Hope you can help. Thank you. .

Dear Sir Thank you for visiting our site Regarding your question, There is no information about ‘vibuthi’ so we can’t give exact guidance. please forgive me for this. In general, in order to check the import requirements(checked by customs at the customs at the customs clearance stage), it is necessary to confirm the exact information on the goods, check the HS code accordingly, and import requirements according to the HS code. If it is a type of ‘wood charcoal’, HS code can be reviewed under HSK 4409.90-9000, and the import requirements of the goods classified in these HS codes are identified by the relevant authorities in accordance with the Act on the Sustainable Use of Timbers. The customs office carries out customs clearance based on the confirmation of the relevant agency. In addition, under the Foreign Trade Act, except as provided for in the laws specified in the Export and Import Approval Confirmation(eg, the Plant Protection Act, the Act on the Transboundary Movement of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal), if imported for the purpose of self-consumption, customs clearance is possible upon confirmation by the head of the customs office. However, the final decision on customs clearance, including whether self-use is recognized, is carried out by the customs clearance department. Therefore, you will need to contact the responsible department for precise guidance regarding customs clearance. For more information, please contact Incheon International Airport. * Incheon International Airport Travel Personnel Civil Affairs Charge: ☎032-722-4422, ☎032-723-5119 Thank you.
