Tobacco: 400 cigarettes or 100 cigars or 500g tobacco
Liquor: 1 litre of spirits or 2 litres of alcoholic beverage
Perfume: 250ml of perfume; 1 litre of eau de toilette
Gifts: Duty free allowance up to TD 100
Cameras: 1 still camera (which seems very odd indeed)
Currency: Import/export of local currency prohibited
The fault is all mine. I am a bit slapdash about thinking I know the address without checking.
Now here's a quandary.
Duty-Free: The following goods may be imported into Tunisia by anyone, irrespective of age, without incurring customs duty:
200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 400g of tobacco; 1 bottle of alcoholic beverages; a reasonable quantity of perfume; gifts up to a value of TD100.
This came from http://www.archersdirect.co.uk and you are right there is a difference. As to which is correct I don't know. But I am going to try and find another source on the basis that 2 out of 3 is a reasonable bet. Will post here if I find anything. I swear that archersdirect address is correct. Where did you find your info?
Brendat and I have both found conflicting info. This has been posted on ciggies topic. I am also checking to see if I can find something on a Tunisian site.
Visitors may bring in one litre of spirits, two litres of wine, 400 cigarettes (or 100 cigars), a quarter litre of perfume, and one litre of eau de toilette, gifts to the value of D100.
This comes from the visitors guide section of http://www.link2exports.co.uk
Which is correct? I know the address is cos I wrote it down. Pass. Maybe the next Tunisia bound travellers could check it out.
Duty free at gatwick had 400 superkings for £35, the plane were selling them for £22. Also the plane had spirits 2 litres for £15
I couldnt get the cigerettes I wanted at PEK (they dont have a big choice) and I didnt think they were any cheaper then the plane
I feel like I've been royally ripped off. The bargains I thought I was getting aren't so much of a bargain now. My receipt says 122 dinar.
Is this usual??
In addition I was hassled by a guy waiting at the end of the tills who was watching our every move and then checking receipts against what was in the bags once you'd finished your transaction. When I was putting my purse back in my bag he asked me if I had a receipt for my sunglasses he could see in there. Cheeky whatsit took them out! I said that I didn't as I'd bought them in England (which I had) and that I'd noticed they didn't sell that make in their duty free. He then let me go.
I really wasn't impressed with this - no wonder there was a long queue....do they always do this?
And ive never heard of them checking reciepts before
All thought they do follow you around in the soula centre in Sousse with is dam annoying ..
My visa company doesn't charge for purchases abroad but before I rang them to query the Euro conversion I didn't want to make a fool of myself if, as a matter of course, visa transactions in Tunisia are converted to GBP from Euro, rather than dinars.
So if anyone knows, give me a shout.
