However, if you are transporting €10,000 or more, or its equivalent in another currency, you must declare it at customs. This measure is standard in many countries and aims to prevent money laundering and other illicit activities.

But it's essential to be aware of the maximum quantities you can take back to your country without having to declare them or pay additional taxes. These limits are subject to change, but here we provide a general guide:

Tobacco: You can carry up to 300 cigarettes or 150 cigars (if they weigh less than 3 grams each) or 75 cigars (if they weigh more) or 400 grams of pipe tobacco.
