Dinesh,

Are there any restrictions to sending any actual packages to India from the USA ?

Just sorta thinking out loud for an idea

Packages? If its a gift, it should not exceed more than 5000 Indian Rupees. That is around $100. (Acc. to India Custom Rules).

After fruitlessly trying to remember my PayPal account details, it seemed easier to create a new one....donated

Oh, and hats off to you Kari for organising this : a noble gesture we don't see enough of that these days. As a reward I give you permission to drink my allocation of beer at the wedding, and I trust Dinesh will look after you

That is great!

I wonder what's going on with Indian PayPal? Everyone had problems to donate on that site you set up, getting the message “We’re sorry. We’re not able to complete personal payments to account holders in India at this time.”

After that, I called several times to PayPal to be able to tell you what you have to do. PayPal pointed me to this link visible at least on European PayPal account pages:

Clicking that, you'll find this new policy (effective from November 2010):

*** Dinesh & Kavita's wedding present ***-pp_2.png

PayPal customer services tell now that for instance transferring existing donations from my PayPal to your PayPal are prohibited because of this. That's why I trust Western Union more, also that you don't get any problems with tax and other authorities there when you receive more money than normally to your bank account. Western Union works to India without restrictions and you get money cash in your hand.

The declared value may not exceed INR 5,000 ($111 using current exchange rate). Be sure you tell the exact contents in customs declaration, this from my own experience.

I hope I'll learn what those things mean...

Dinesh do not read following!

My main purpose on trip is to give Dinesh a bachelor party he remembers! I just wish it does not effect his honeymoon as my party before marrying my first wife did. In my first honeymoon she went to Stocholm, Sweden, with her friends and I went to Malaga, Spain alone. What a honeymoon!

Three years later we were divorced with two kids.

Hoppy, that must be your browser or connection causing problems. The site works fine.

Donations to Dinesh & Kavita
Just wanted to post that what Kari has told us is true and no way has this been a scam or a rip off to line his own pocket. Having looked over the accounts I can say that Dinesh has indeed received more than the total of donations shown because Kari has covered the cost of the exchange plus...

I am rather excited about it even though I am a Yank. I have already told my significant other that we are going to the wedding and she is as excited as I am. I have also told her that the only thing that could stop us is if we don't get an invitation..............:p
