Duty Allowances

Because of new laws passed in 2007, the only place where you can buy cigarettes in Mallorca is in an official tobacconists (Tabacs) or from a machine. Prices are standardised and can be found by scrolling down the page.

How many cigarettes, or smoking/pipe tobacco can you take back to the UK? Read the following which is an extract from the Government website:

If you are travelling to the UK from the European Union (EU), you can bring in an unlimited amount of most goods for your own use without paying tax or duty, but certain rules apply.

If a customs official from the UK Border Agency (UKBA) thinks you may be bringing in excise goods such as alcohol and tobacco from the EU for commercial use - perhaps to sell to other people or simply for reimbursement - they may ask you questions and make checks. You may be asked about:
• 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 on the amount of alcohol and tobacco you can bring in from EU countries, customs officials are more likely to ask you questions if you have more than the following:

Cigarettes 800   Cigarillos 400
Cigars 200   Smoking tobacco 1kg
Spirits 10 litres   Wine 90 litres

110 litres

  Fortified wine 20 litres

Please note that the Cigarette and Tobacco allowances were reduced on 1 October 2011.

The allowances for the Republic of Ireland are the same. Further details see: www.revenue.ie/
