My GF goes on a medical mission (from a EU country) to Benin shortly, and wants to take some wine for her hosts. How much can she import duty-free?

1 Answer 1


From the IATA TravelCentre:

Import regulations:

Free import by tourists over 15 years of age:

  • 200 cigarettes or 100 cigarillos or 25 cigars or 250 grams of tobacco;
  • 1 bottle of wine and 1 bottle of spirits;
  • 1/2 liter of eau de toilette and 1/4 liter of perfume.
  • 3
    Thanks. I notice that they talk about "one bottle", but it doesn't mention size. Does that mean that you can take a 3 liter bottle? Asking for a friend :-)

    @vasin1987 I am probably completely misreading your comment, but Benin has been independent from france for like half a century, hasn't it? Feb 21 at 7:22
