 Yes!  The  permit  is  for  the  fish.  Im  assuming  Bangkok  is  her  last  halt  in  Thailand  before  she  returns  to  Mumbai
 
 About  Chatuchak  (pronounced  Jatujhak  sometimes)
 
 Chatuchak  is  essentially  a  Weekend  Flea  Market  ...  i.e.  ALL  the  pet  stores,  aquarium  stores  etc.  On  weekdays  its  partially  functional.  It  closes  by  6ish  in  the  evening.  She  should  get  there  by  10  a.m.  if  she  wants  to  enjoy  the  place.....especially  the  aquarium  stores    Very Happy  
 
 Last  i  visited  (a  your  ago)  they  had  a  special  animal  day...this  includes  fish  and  plants.  
 
 Btw,  Thailand  is  the  Land  of  the  Bettas  -  if  you  like  the  species.
 
 Im  so  sad  i  cant  go  this  time    Sad  
 
 Hope  she  has  a  blast  and  brings  you  back  lots  of  'fishy'  goodies!!
 
 regards

 Hi  Venkat!
                       The  permit  might  be  for  the  fishes  to  leave  Thailand,  but  I  am  afraid  as  per  the  latest  Baggage  Rules  of  India,  live  fish  are  not  permitted  into  India  (unless  you  have  a  specific  Import  License).  In  all  you  may  have  to  take  a  calculated  risk  of  getting  your  fish  through  or  of  leaving  your  fish  back  at  the  Airport  if  they  are  found.  It  is  up  to  you.

 Hi  Suneal,
 
 I  understand  the  risk  that  you  point  out.  Maybe  I  should  not  get  any  expensive  fish  in  case  I  have  to  leave  them  at  the  airport.
 
 Maybe  just  plants...
 
 BTW,  have  the  rules  changed  right  now?  Because  people  seem  pretty  confident  of  getting  them  through  in  case  the  fish  aren't  in  commercial  quantity.
 
 anybody  brought  in  stuff  recently  to  Mumbai,  please  PM  me...
 
 Anyway  Suneal,  I  guess  I'll  give  you  a  call  on  this.  
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Would  Betta  macrostoma  be  available  ?
 
 Or  is  there  a  reason  nobody  suggested  it  Smile

 Betta  macrostoma  and  Betta  channoides  are  rare  and  expensive  even  in  Thailand.  They  cost  anywhere  between  1k-4k  each.

 No  wonder!!!
 It  is  a  beautiful  fish  and  unfortunately  also  in  the  endangered  list.
 
 Thanks  Beta  for  the  information...

 I've  brought  fish  from  Bankok  twice  in  the  last  year  and  had  no  problem  getting  them  through  customs.I  made  sure  to  get  small  fish,  had  them  packed  individually  and  then  wrapped  them  in  clothes  the  first  time  and  in  my  padded  camera  bag  the  second  time  -  it  was  a  much  better  option,  the  camera  bag  kept  the  fish  safe.  There  is  a  previous  thread  on  this  topic  which  I  started  a  year  ago  before  going  the  first  time
         Take  it  from  me  once  your  wife  goes  to  Chatuchak    her  shopping  won't  stop  with  fish

 I  know.  I  budgeted  for  that...How  do  you  think  I  convinced  her  to  go  to  the  smelly,  wet  fish  section!!!    Chuckle
