It's not the sender's fault if you've asked them to mail something to you that's not allowed into Thailand.

It's up to you to check beforehand. You are responsible for any duty charges or customs issues not them.

I'm afraid you've lost your money.

It means - there is no chance to get it ?

If the imported goods seized by the customs authorities forfeited to the state. in some cases they may even be required charges as the cost of its destruction, if it were to become too expensive. Your merchandise is gone. You had to find out what goods are prohibited to import. Overview of products is listed on every page of the main customs authority. Sorry, but I have more good news for you.

I did not think any thing that is legal here in Aus was illegal in Thailand with the exception of Codine medicine

It may not be illegal in Thailand just that import is restricted without a prior licence.

Read the second section below from the Thai Customs website:

 

GENERAL PROHIBITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS

The Thai Government controls the import and export of certain goods into/out of Thailand. The controls either take the form of:

 

an absolute prohibition, which means that you are not allowed to import the goods in any circumstances; or

a restriction, where you need to have written permission in order to import the goods.

Samples OF Prohibited and Restricted Goods

 

The following information broadly outlines what goods are prohibited or restricted, where you can obtain more information about the control and, in the case of restricted goods, to apply for permission to import.

 

1. Prohibited Goods are goods for which either the import into or export out of Thailand are prohibited. Any person imports or exports prohibited goods is considered as committing offences and subject to penalties indicated in the relevant national legislation. In addition, such activity is also considered as an offence under Articles 27 and 27 bis of the Customs Act B.E. 2469. It is prohibited by law to bring the following items into Thailand.

 

Obscene objects/literature/pictures

Pornographic materials

Goods with Thai national flag

Narcotics e.g., marijuana, hemp, opium, cocaine, morphine, heroin

Fake currency, bonds, or coins

Fake Royal Seals/official seals

IPR infringing goods e.g. musical tape, CD, VDO, computer software, etc.

Counterfeit trademark goods

2. Restricted Goods are goods of which the imports and exports are restricted by law and therefore require a permit from the related government agencies. Any person imports or exports restricted goods is considered as committing offences and subject to penalties indicated in the relevant national legislation. In addition, such activity is also subjected to the offence under Articles 27 and 27 bis of the Customs Act B.E. 2469.

 

The Ministry of Commerce designates classes of goods that are subject to import controls, which usually take the form of permission and licensing. Although these controls are being liberalized, at present more than 50 classes of goods require import licenses from the Ministry of Commerce. These categories are frequently changed through notifications of the Ministry of Commerce. A license to import any of the restricted items must be obtained from the Ministry of Commerce prior to importation. Application for the license must be accompanied by a supplier’s order, confirmation, invoice, and other pertinent documents.

 

In addition to the Act imposing the above controls, a number of goods are also subject to import controls under or other relevant agencies. These include:

 

• The import of drugs, foods, and supplementary products requires prior licensing from the Food and Drug Administration, the Ministry of Health.

• The import or export of antiques or objects of art, whether registered or not, requires permission from the Fine Arts Department.

• The imports of weapons and ammunition, explosives, fireworks and real and replica firearms requires appropriate license from the Ministry of Interior. Other weapons such as electric shock devices must also be declared. Some of these items may require a permit, before importation.

• The Cosmetic Act stipulates that for the purpose of protection of public health, any importer of controlled cosmetics must provide the name and location of the office and the place of manufacture or storage of the cosmetics, the category, or kind of cosmetics to be imported, and the major components of the cosmetics.

 

The import of wild fauna, flora, fish and other aquatic fauna requires permission from the National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department, the Department of Agriculture, or the Department of Fishery as the case may be.

 

Thai Customs is charged to stop the importation and exportation of prohibited goods. In addition, it is also designated to intercept the importation and exportation of restricted goods, ensuring that all relevant laws and regulations are followed properly. The comprehensive list of prohibited and restricted goods as well as information about the control and, in the case of restricted goods, to permission to import, may be obtained from the Department of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Commerce.

Let's be honest.

Was that declared on the packaging or did they open it and find out?

 

Was it a sex toy or was it dealer quantity?

prostitution has been illegal in Thailand since 1960. The prohibition is, however, not strictly enforced.

The "Entertainment Places Act of 1966", still in effect today, makes it possible for Thais to render "special services". This is done, for example, by establishing such places as massage parlors where men come and look at women, who are sitting separated by a glass wall, and can pick and choose whom they want. The women come to the men's hotel room and massage them, but, in reality do more than that. It is usually left for the customer to decide what kind of special service he really wants, and because of that such establishments are able to avoid being designated as (illegal) brothels.

This act was designed to pave the way for brothels to be legalized under the guise of massage parlours, bars, night-clubs, tea-houses, etc.

The "Prevention and Suppression of Prostitution Act of 1996" outlawed the hiring of prostitutes under the age of 18, as well as people associating in prostitution establishments for the purpose of prostitution; the latter provision does not appear to be enforced.

copied from wikipedia?

 

there are no legal provisions in Thai Law banning privately selling sex in exchange for money.

 

if "The Prevention and Suppression of Prostitution Act of 1996" outlawed the hiring of prostitutes under the age of 18, what does this imply for prostitutes over the age of 18?

 

do some research and report back if you found any article of law banning selling sex for money.

 

the matter has been discussed here already as well as on other forums and it has been established that freelancers can only be punished for excessive solicitation, and if the punter and the prostitute went to a police station and confessed they had sex for money, the police would have nothing to charge them with, because it simply is not illegal.

Not with sex toys, but I was curious about what exactly happened.

 

I've been sourcing stuff from China recently, mainly computer parts and nothing illegal and so far no problems.

 

Next I was thinking about a GoPro clone and wondering if I'd get hit..

 

A lot of sex toys are made in China however.   :Think1:
