I recently arrived at Barbados airport and was stopped by a custom officer. She asked if I had any cigarettes and I answered truthfully that I had purchased 200 at Gatwick also my husband had purchased 200 too. She informed me that I would have to pay £50 duty for these cigarettes. I argued that the website had stated that I could bring in 200 and also the booklet on Virgin plane had said the same. she informed me that the law as recently changed and that no cigarettes were permitted. She confiscated the cigarettes and gave me a receipt and said I could collect them on my return journey. I did collect them on my return but only after a lot of hassle. I am just warning other travellers not to try and bring cigarettes into Barbados with them. We were staying in Barbados for a few days prior to embarking a cruise ship. At the Barbados port the cigarettes are very cheap.
