there is no limit as long as it is reasonable i think m8
 
Lol, cheers for the reply m8. i thought there would be restrictions on fags because if i remember right ur only allowed to b ring back 3600 fags back form anywhere in Europe. SO i tohught the yanks mite have some sort of restriction on it aswell.

heres a tip m8
try keep it as hand luggage i was bringing 1000 cigs back and put them in my case
(u cannot lock it btw) if u do the can break it open
u can buy a lock that they have keys for

they where stolen from the case by there customs

cheaper to buy here in dutyfree

this is only a guide line m8 they have to prove that you are a regular traveler to confiscate them if you travel abroard once a year them you are allowed to bring more back
as for the pr..ks sorry i mean yanks i think as said before no limit as long as it's renot for resale
 
Travelling to the UK from outside the European Union (EU)



(Download options for this document)


When travelling from a non-EU country (including the Canary Islands, the Channel islands and Gibraltar) you can bring the following into the UK for your own use without paying UK tax or duty:
  • 200 cigarettes; or 100 cigarillos; or 50 cigars; or 250g of tobacco
  • 60cc of perfume
  • 2 litres of still table wine
  • 250cc of eau de toilette
  • 1 litre of spirits or strong liqueurs over 22 per cent volume; or 2 litres of fortified wine*, sparkling wine or other liqueurs *such as port or sherry and
  • £145 worth of all other goods including gifts and souvenirs.
If you have any more than these allowances you must declare the goods in the red channel or use the red point phone. If you do not, you are breaking the law and we may prosecute you.
  • If you are under 17 you cannot have the tobacco and alcohol allowances.
  • You are entitled to these allowances only if you travel with the goods and do not sell them.
  • If you bring in something worth more than the limit of £145, you must pay charges on the full value, not just the value above £145.

  • If you are bringing back any duty-free or tax-free goods you bought when you left the UK, these count as part of your allowance.

its not a real crime its this damn goverment and it bloody tax mongering...the yanks will sell you as many as you want even in the airport duty free even though they know your english/british, ive never had a problem.
