GC Customs

Hi, this may be a strange question, but my boyfriend plays rugby and needs to keep training through our holiday, and if possible would like to bring protein formula on holiday with us. Does anyone know if there would be any problems coming through customs?

Hi Courtney,

I would keep it in its original container and put it in the suitcase. Can't really see a problem with that.

As the other reply said, if he keeps it in the orignal container he shouldn't have any problems.

Having said that, I have been going to GC for 22 years now and I have NEVER seen anyone stopped by customs.

After you collect your luggage, you head out through the sliding doors where there is a customs desk. I don't recall ever actually even seeing anyone sitting on it. If there is anyone there they seem to be more focussed on stopping people entering the baggage hall from the public area.

It's not like the customs over here in the UK, where you have red, green and EU channels.
