Lets say you have two packages...package a and package b...and in package a you have a private variable, then you import package a to package b...this private variable is not visible in package b...correct?

The private variable is not accesible outside of the class.

yes, it is correct because private modifier is actually made for security of the varible . You can use that variable through the methods (from same class in which private varibles are declared) but you can modify that variables value.
It is the part of ENCAPSULATION.
ok ..
