Abolition of duty-free goods within the EU


On 30th June 1999, the sale of duty-free alcohol and tobacco at airports and at sea was abolished in all of the original 15 European Union member states. Of the ten new member states that joined the EU on 1st May 2004, these rules already apply to Cyprus and Malta. There are transitional rules in place for visitors returning to one of the original 15 EU countries from one of the other new EU countries. But for the original 15, plus Cyprus and Malta, there are now no limits imposed on importing tobacco and alcohol products from one EU country to another, with the exceptions of Denmark, Finland and Sweden, where limits are imposed. Travellers should note that they may be required to prove at customs that the goods purchased are for their personal use only.
