I am traveling with my Girlfriend to Seoul South Korea. I am planning to ask her to marry me and I am taking the engagement ring with me. She will take the ring back after our holiday is finished. Upon arrival the ring will be in my carry on, I am scared the surprise will be ruined by customs. Do I need to declare that I am bringing a ring of 10k value? If I have to declare it, how can I without my gf being suspicious. I am looking forward to a reply!

Dear Sir/Madam Thank you for visiting our site Regarding your question, If the temporary visitor is used by himself/herself and is exported again for a short period of time as personal items or professional equipment, he/she may be exempted from customs duties and VAT at the time of importation subject to re-export. However, in order to utilize this system, it is necessary to judge whether the goods are suitable for this system and to submit an import declaration and reduction application when importing it into the country. When you enter the country, you check the ‘Declaration Form of Personal Effects’(※ Check out item 6 in ‘Goods subject to declaration’) and you will be notified of the import. Also, when exporting to outside the country, it should be confirmed by Customs. If you do not declare it, you may be required to pay customs duties and VAT on the goods. The KCS Customer Support Center only provides general customs administration procedures and related laws and regulations. You should contact the department directly responsible for the 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.
