Customs Allowance

Guernsey is not part of the EU; therefore the maximum allowances are:

Tobacco:

200 cigarettes or 100 cigarillos or  50 cigars or 250 grams of tobacco

Alcohol:

 > 22% by volume (spirits/liqueurs) 1 litre or under 22% volume (inc fortified, sparkling wine and other liqueurs) 2 litres and Still table wine  4 litres plus 4 extra litres of still table wine if no spirits, liqueurs, fortified or sparkling wines are purchased and Beer or cider (or a combination)  50 litres

Other Goods:

a) If brought in from a place within the customs territory of the European Community, and provided all duties have been paid, goods to an unlimited value.

b) If brought in from a place outside the customs territory of the European Community by a person

– travelling on a commercial air or sea service, goods to a value of £390

– travelling by private aircraft or private vessel, goods to a value of £270

If you bring something worth more than the monetary limit, you will have to pay duty on the full value, not just on the value above the limit.  If you are travelling as a family or group, you cannot pool your individual allowances towards an item worth more than the limit. You will have to pay duty on the full value of the item. People under the age of 17 cannot have the tobacco or alcohol allowance.
