    I have heard a lot of people complaining that you can only buy one bottle of alcohol at the airport.

    Here are the official limits arriving and exiting.(according to Setur)

    Shopping limits per person for passengers who enter the country:



    Smoking: carton 3
    Alcoholic beverages: 1 liter of alcoholic beverages (more than 22% alcohol that contain alcoholic drinks, excluding wine and champagne)
    Alcoholic beverages: 2 liters of alcoholic beverages (less than 22% alcoholic drinks that contain alcohol, including wine and champagne)
    Perfume: 600 ml
    Makeup or skin care products: 5
    Chocolate and confectionery: 2 kg
    Coffee: 1 kg
    Tea: 1 kg

    Shopping limits per passenger for passengers departing the country

    Cigarettes: carton of 9
    Alcoholic drinks: 3 liters of alcohol (more than 22% alcohol that contain alcoholic drinks, excluding wine and champagne)
    Alcoholic beverages: 6 liters of alcohol (less than 22% alcoholic drinks that contain alcohol, including wine and champagne)
    Perfume: 1800 ml
    Makeup or skin care products: 15
    Chocolate and candies: 6 kg
    Coffee: 3 kg
    Tea: 3 kg

    Just remember the limits are what can be bought and not what the country of destination will allow.
    For example
    9 cartons of cigarettes is 1800 but you are only allowed to bring in 1 carton which is 200 in the UK.

    So on arriving if that bottle of Vodka is over 22% then only 1 bottle is allowed :mad:

    The list I have poster are shopping limits not customs allowances
    All information is useful, some of the things on the customs list are very interesting ... :carmy:
    A friend of mine once bought the 9 cartons of cigarettes on his way to Samos only to have them confiscated on arrival (he believed that was the customs allowance) needless to say he was not a happy bunny :mad:
