I am going to Serbia this summer and I would like to know how many cigarettes I can bring back to the European Union.
P.S I am going from Serbia to Latvia through Frankfurt (Germany) by plane.
I think it may vary from country to country, but usually you're allowed to bring 200 cigattes.
Each Member State decides on the limit applicable:
- 200 cigarettes or 40 cigarettes;*
- 100 cigarillos or 20 cigarillos; *
- 50 cigars or 10 cigars; *
- 250 grams of tobacco or 50 g smoking tobacco*
*Each amount represents 100% of the total allowance for tobacco products and any combination of those products must not exceed 100%. Example: 100 cigarettes + 50 cigarillos = total allowance
The website of the German customs administration confirms that 200 cigarettes can be brought into Germany tax/duty-free.
