    This would be 21% on the balance after you exceed the $220 per person, correct?

    I think it’s hit and miss with them scanning luggage. When I came in April and July they were not scanning the luggage. Last October they did scan. I made sure I had receipts for anything I brought. My husband bringing a few items and I told him to copy receipts, just in case they scan.

    I have been bringing things over for years. They pulled me over twice in 60 some trips. I told them I heard you are allowed $250 per person for personal use. They let me go both times. But you need the receipts. I came here from Bonaire last week and they scanned my bag and the guy pulled me to the side. He wanted to know what kind of parts I had in my suitecase. I told him I don't have any parts. I was diving on Bonaire. He said he has to take a look. I said fine, but its probably my 2 dive lights. Sure enough, he pulled them out and ask the scanner guy and he said yep! Thats what it was. So away I went.

    it is a crapshoot as to whether Aruba Customs will scan your bags.

    Congrats on the home purchase.
