As previously mentioned, Gibraltar and The Channel Islands are treated as being outside of the EU for the Duty Free section.
If bringing items into any EU Country where you have had tax paid you won't be required to pay additional tax or duty when returning to the UK.
Any alcohol or tobacco brought into the Country however, must be carried by the passenger, for the passenger's own use (i.e. personal consumption and/or gifts). Goods of any kind brought into the Country for resale or for payment will be considered as for a commercial use.
Should customs have reason to suspect that any such goods have been brought into the Country for commercial use, you are likely to be asked a series of questions by a Customs Officer. For example, what are the type and quantity of goods that have been bought? Why they were bought? How much was paid? How often the passenger travels? How much alcohol and tobacco the passenger normally consumes?
Also taken into account is whether the goods have been concealed or if they where highly visible.
For example, customs are likely to suspect if the following quantities are being imported:
* 3,200 cigarettes
* 200 cigars
* 400 cigarillos
* 3kg tobacco
* 110 Litres of beer
* 90 Litres of wine
* 10 Litres of spirits
* 20 Litres of fortified wine (i.e. port or sherry)
If it is decided that the goods have been brought into the country for commercial use the goods are likely to be seized and not returned. Likewise, if you are caught selling alcohol or tobacco goods, they may be seized. Both are considered a serious offence and the maximum sentence passed is up to seven years in prison.
Like the UK, most Countries have their own laws on how much tobacco and alcohol you may have in your possession when entering their Country. Some require you to carry documents covering the goods in your possession. If you are planning on buying larger amounts of alcohol or tobacco, check with the Country’s Authorities before you purchase the goods so you are not breaking any laws.
PLEASE NOTE: The following EU Countries have their own special rules for cigarettes and tobacco products:
Czech Republic 200 cigarettes, or
250g smoking tobacco, or
50 cigars, or
Estonia 200 cigarettes, or
250g of smoking tobacco*
Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia & Slovenia 200 Cigarettes*
* From these Countries, there is no limit on other tobacco products as long as they are for the passengers own consumption.
