How much can I take back?

from EU countries

When arriving into the UK from an EU country you can bring in an unlimited amount of most goods.

For excise goods such as alcohol and tobacco, there are no restrictions,

as long as they’re for your own use.


You don’t pay duty or tax on goods you bring in from the European Union (EU) as long as you:

  • transport them yourself
  • will use them yourself or give them away as a gift
  • have paid duty and tax in the country where you bought them


Customs checks

If a customs officer thinks you may be bringing in goods to sell, they may stop you to make checks and ask:

  • the type and quantity of goods you’ve bought
  • why you bought them
  • how you paid for them
  • how often you travel
  • how much you normally smoke or drink

Although there are no limits to the alcohol and tobacco you can bring in from EU countries, you’re more likely to be asked questions if you have more than the amounts below.

Type of goods Amount
Cigarettes 800
Cigars 200
Cigarillos 400
Tobacco 1kg
Beer 110 litres
Wine 90 litres
Spirits 10 litres
Fortified wine (eg sherry, port) 20 litres
