What can I or can't I bring in my relocation 'allowance'?

Postby Telboyofpeckham » Sat, 12 Mar 2011 8:14 pm

Got a container of furniture coming over from the UK and I am looking for the 'definitive' list of what I can & can't bring.

Food tuff would be really helpful as we love to cook & have a comprehensively stocked kitchen in the UK. Like can I bring over our olive oils, vinegars, dried herbs, spices & such like?

Is there anything that I should bring over? Someone said disposable nappies & sunscreen are really expensive here.

Is it worth bringing a good stock of wine over, even if it means paying the duty on it?

Any good solid, constructive advice would be most welcome. Or links to threads. Thank you.

Thanks Mad Scientist. I had a good look through it. Very helpful link.

Olive oils & food stuffs seems to be OK. I guess if it's not on the list is fine to bring in.

Hope there won't be any surprises when we move it through customs.

Only 10 litres of wine though... :cry:
