If its from within the EU you are fine as long as you can prove justifiably that it is for personal use. As for outside the EU I did find a figure somewhere and it was like 750g per person though Im not sure if that is current. You might wanna check direct.gov.uk or email someone to do with that.

I think the 750g might have been specific to Egypt. I am struggling to find concrete numbers but I think you can email directgov and get an answer off them. I don't know though if the customs guys would even know themselves lol it is that hard to find out

Outide of the EU you are only allowed to bring in 250g without paying customs. Anything you over that you have to pay the customs duty owed which is quite high. Brought tobacco in from Dubai and Egypt a few times over the limit but luckily was not checked.

per person the limit is, the 100kg people bring in is usually from containers hidden away, you would be lucky to get away with more then 10kg in ur suitcase TBH

I tried it and it won't work plus it's illegal. The tobacco will get confiscated. No point and you lose all your money. hoever if you go abroad you can bring a few kilo's back any more and it's likely to get confiscated. The UK tax is the same as cigerrettes like 90% tax Madness.

it's expensive and difficult to get hold of, unlike America or the Middle east. Import duty and Tax is a killer

750g will be overall - but i think it's 250g.
you can try your luck at 30-40 kg but you'll get screwed if u get caught
