Fine for forgetting to declare sandwich at customs: ‘expensive sandwich’ | Abroad

The story did not go unnoticed. It attracted worldwide media attention. Eventually the subway heard her story. The company gave her gift cards and sent her merchandise. Her family now calls her “the subway girl,” Lee told The Washington Post. He calls his sandwich “the most expensive sandwich.”

The story begins with a starving Lee and his companion traveling almost 13,000 kilometers from Greece to Australia via Singapore. It made her “very hungry.” She went to Subway for a sandwich, which she was told she could take on the plane.

Once in Australia, she completely forgot that her half-eaten sandwich was with chocolate. That means she didn’t fill the correct boxes in the customs form. Violating strict Australian rules can result in prosecution, cancellation of your visa or fines.


He posted a video on TikTok “so others don’t make the same mistake.” It went viral. As of Wednesday, it had already been viewed more than 1.3 million times. “My friends and family were sending me news articles about me, and I was just sitting there going around the internet because, yeah, I’m an idiot,” he says with a laugh.

The Domino’s Pizza TikTok account tagged Subway in its video. Immediately an employee of the sandwich company approached her. She couldn’t pay the fine, but she wanted to help, the message said. Received 1812 Euros worth of Subway gift cards along with a box of branded goods.

Lee was not injured in the incident. A month ago, he decided to quit his job to start a business in social media. “I made a stupid mistake, but I was like, ‘You know what? This is going to be the moment to keep doing what I’m doing.'” Her new followers are now worth more than paying her a fine.
