This is the link to allowed customs.


Cigarettes can be purchased from tobacco kiosks at supermarkets such as SuperU.

I don't smoke so no idea how much they cost in the UK but in Mauritius they seem expensive in the supermarkets - about £4-5.

They also sell in arrivals duty free in Mauritius but no idea how much.

I imagine you will be travelling AF so try CDG duty free.

If you go via Dubai they are cheaper - about £15 for a 200 carton.
