Cigarettes Cigars Tobacco
Duty Free Cigarettes, Cigars, Tobacco: The sale of tobacco products in some duty free shops is now restricted, as is the online advertising and sale of these products. Every day, more regulations are being introduced to restrict the retailer from displaying their tobacco product selection and prices to the consumer. This makes it very difficult for smokers to find their brand when they travel and discover where they can buy these products in a duty free shop.
Some countries, such as Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong, now prohibit the importation of tobacco products, whilst still permitting the sale of the goods for export from their duty free stores. You can search your departure or arrival shops on this site by clicking the on-line duty free shopping links on this page.
Where available, we will display a local duty free catalogue for this location and a price list which will feature the products you can buy at your travel point. We will also provide regular updates as to where these tobacco restrictions are introduced to enable to plan your travel shopping. A full detail of tobacco restrictions and duty free allowances can be found on our customs page by clicking the red Customs icon on your destination page.
This website only provides links to duty free and tax-free shops who retail their tobacco products in a secure customs controlled area. No links or information is provided to internet retailers of tobacco goods claiming to sell such products via the internet. The purpose of this website is to furnish the travelling shopper with relevant information related to bona fide duty free and tax-free retail facilities.
Duty Free or Tax-Free goods purchased in a Customs secure area, such as in an airport, on an airline, a ferry or a cruise ship, are sold free of taxes primarily for export. You are responsible to carry these goods through Customs at your point of arrival and checks may be made as to whether you are within the limits, allowances or exemptions. In some countries, this is known as the 'travellers baggage allowance'. For this reason duty free retailers are not permitted to arrange home delivery of the goods for you.
Some airlines will offer delivery of goods, but this is because these particular goods are actually tax-paid goods, such as gifts. In some countries the Tax-Refund scheme operates, where you can reclaim the local sales taxes such as VAT/GST, when you leave the country. Normally, you will be required to complete a customs export form at the airport, port or border and then show your purchases to Customs before you leave the country. The rules for some domestic shopping in special tax free territories like USVI, Andorra, Samnaun or San Andres, may be different, but in general home delivery is not an option.
