In the name of science I went through the red section of customs and declared my Testosterone (5 x 1ml vials) and Arimidex (half a dozen tablets) a few hours ago.
I had the product information sheets out of the boxes and put them in a clear plastic bag with the drugs.
The lady at the red section took a look at them and didn’t have a clue what they were, didn’t bother to open or read the product information sheets, and just generally couldn’t be arsed. I was literally the only person presenting myself at the items to be declared section, with everyone else streaming through the green nothing to declare section.
I’m not sure it’s a conclusive experiment that you can bring Testosterone in (without a prescription) without too much hassle. I might have just got an easy pass today.
I’d say the rules clearly allow medicine without prescription and it’s worth declaring the items through red section rather than going through nothing to declare and getting a fine/ taken off you / sent to prison.
I had the immigration rules regarding declaring medicine printed out ready to be challenged, but alas I got the I really can’t be arsed with any of this today agent.
