New rules that will come into force on January 1 will restrict the number of cigarettes that may be brought into Ireland for personal use by people traveling from Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania, according to a story in the Irish Independent.
From that date, travelers from those countries will be allowed to bring only 300 cigarettes into Ireland without the payment of further excise duty.
The changes do not apply to other tobacco products brought in from these EU member states, as long as those products are for personal use and not for commercial purposes.
Currently, people traveling to Ireland from other EU countries can bring in 800 cigarettes without paying any additional excise duties.
