I am not surprised when officer at airport asks me for random(?) bag check. Usually I have big backpack, wearing not the cleanest clothes on after a long trip, so I can go directly to custom officer after collecting my checked luggage. But last time I was on short trip and had only small bag. Landed on Monday morning and was rushing to the office as I had some urgent job to do. Again I was stopped by custom officer. It didn’t took much time to check my small bag, but I asked him, why I was stopped and the answer was: “I saw you was moving very fast towards exist”. Lesson learned: don’t run in customs area, it won’t help you leave airport faster.
One response to “Don’t run in customs zone in airport”
Yes, it happened to me once. But at passport control after landing. I was not in a hurry but I was impatient and I changed queues several times. I am sure they have cameras because when I went through customs they asked me to open all suitcases. Now I am just patient and very careful of what I do when I go through passport control and immigrations.
Thanks for the advice
