Not a problem :)

Im not sure im a baccy person, so I didnt take notice what cigarette brands were available, but I do know they have most of the major brands on sale,but Amber leaf isnt anywhere ive been.

Also dont buy at the airport, but from a shop in Malta its cheaper.

I can recommend a few places in Sliema but anywhere else im sure someone else here will point you in the right direction.

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: 800 cigarettes or 200 cigars or 400 cigarillos or 1kg of tobacco, 10 liters of spirits, 90 liters of wine and 110 liters of beer. This allowance is per individual aged 18 or over.

As for prices the Airport price is the same as most local shops, there are however some shops that sell them without the local duty being paid, you risk these being confiscated on arrival in the UK.

For local prices see the following websites:-

You would be better buying them in the shops then storing them in your suitcase but remember your weight allowance 800 cigs take up a good deal of space and you can then buy more in the duty paid shop in the airport as their is no such thing as duty free within the EU.

The regulations are as they say in post one you are allowed 800 that is 4 cartons you are not allowed bring in whatever you like but you more than likely will get away with 4 in your case and two in hand luggage.

Cigarillos 400

Tobacco 1 kilogram
