I’ve been binge-watching shows like Nothing to Declare and Border Patrol and one of the main things on the show is people traveling with prohibited food. I’ve traveled, gone on vacation, flown internationally a few times and I’ve never felt like I needed to take meat, fruit, plants and spices on my vacation.
I guess I can understand someone visiting a relative and bringing something like spices that aren’t available where they are but why on earth would someone try to sneak kiwis into New Zealand??
Tour groups where almost every member has ham, fish, bags of apples, lettuce, you name it. Their suitcases are just jammed full of food. I can see bringing a bag of peanuts or a granola bar for a snack but why are they traveling with so much food?
