Brits can only take a few items on holiday to Spain

 Tuesday, December 14, 2021 


Rules changed since Britain left the EU, restrictions imposed, things allowed to take into countries like Spain have changed as well. Cannot take meat, milk or dairy products into EU countries like Spain. Sausages and cheese are banned. Cakes that contain fresh cream and sweets made with gelatin can be carried.

English cheese like Cornish brie, Wensleydale and also clotted cream fudge can be carried. A jar of Bovril also fall foul of the rules, because it contains gelatine, and mince pies and Christmas pudding that contains suet would also be banned.

Powdered baby milk is an exception to this rule, as long as it is sealed and in its original packaging. Allowed to take up to 20kg of fish and up to 2kg of honey.

Allowed to take alcohol into Spain, but there are new restrictions on the amount you can take now that we have left the EU. There has been a reduction in the amount of alcohol to take abroad. No more than four litres of spirits, 18 litres of still wine or 42 litres of beer can be carried.

Can take 200 cigarettes or 250g of tobacco into Spain. Can take up to €10,000 into Spain across all currencies. Above this and the money will be reported to customs on entry. A warning of huge queues for Brit holidaymakers has been issued as a major change to European travel comes next summer.

Prior to leaving the EU, there weren’t specific limits on the amount of tobacco or cigarettes that could be taken into Spain. If exceeded risk of fine or confiscation.
