  • Cuando viaje a Australia revisaron mi equipaje en las aduanas.

               When I travelled to Australia they checked all my luggage at customs.



  • Si quieres comprar un coche extranjero tendrás que pagar en la aduana cuando te lo envíen.

               If you want to buy a foreign car you will have to pay a fare at customs.
