thanks for the info , do they sell them in 5 x 50 gm as I thought that was the limit in the UK ?
I only took it back once before and was stopped with 10 x 50 gm the " jobs worth " took the lot ..
I bought that lot in UAE , is 1900 bht cheaper than in the UK ?

Hi Timmy
Firstly they do sell in the 5 x 50 packs, I’m confusing you with my trips as I was travelling with my wife so I could get the 10 pack
Your right, 5 x 50 is the single adult allowance limit into U.K.
just as a matter of interest for cost ..1900 bht is approx £47 and is WAY. WAY Cheaper than buying in Blighty
Example one 50 g pouch in Tesco is £24.15 ( price searched online in Tesco website)
if you are stopping over in Dubai you can buy it there duty free even cheaper than swampy as I found out on my last emirates flight

As you come down the ramp from immigration the first duty free shop on your right stocks Golden Virginia but only in 10 X 50 gram boxes.
I was stopped by UK Customs and as I owned up before he searched my bags he let me off with a warning and let me keep the baccy.

thanks for that info , now I,m wondering what the " duty " would be on the extra 5 packs if I declared them the
same as you did as I,m quite sure i would not just walk away with a warning in M/chester . every **** that
works there thinks they,re " supercop " taking down an international smuggling ring ….
the best of all this is " I don't and never have smoked " its just for a mate ..

The duty on Hand rolling Baccy is 209.77 Pounds per Kilo.
That would work out at 21 Pounds per packet for the extra 5 packets you would be carrying.

Would VAT be applied on top of the duty?

They Normally Do ( Well at Heathrow they DO ) I Once had 1,000 Cigarettes,I Declared them & The Customs guy searched my bags to see if THAT is all i had & Found out I was telling the truth, He said to me O.K Away you go " It's The BIG Seizures we are after.... :lol: :lol:

Timmy, Couldn't Agree with you more those Security at Manchester are DOGS !! Also the B.A Check In Crew are like the MAFIA,I Had a Couple of Kilos extra in my check in baggage a few years ago & They DEMANDED 65 Pounds Extra or Take somethings out of you're Bag,I Didn't have ANY English Currency or a CC at that time So I Had to take out The Mrs's Christmas Presents & The Security made me Dispose of it as it was Creams & prfumes Over a 100mgs.....So Over 200 Pounds Down the Rubbish Bin....B'Stards Nearly made me Miss my flight to LHR With me Arguing with them but to NO Avail !!

Have you considered asking a fellow passenger to carry 5 packs through for you?

no I don't think its worth the problems I may get when its not for me anyway ,

I did find the Chinese shop just down from immigration that sells loads of
tobaccer & booze but they wanted 1900 baht for 5 x 50 gm packs that seemed
a bit OTT to me ...
