3200 ciggies allowed ..just make sure that you buy all the same brand otherwise you can have difficulty proving that they are for own personal use

Since 1st October 2011 customs are more likely to ask questions if you have more than 800 cigarettes according to the government website and proof that they are for own consumption etc. despite there being no actual limitations if coming from another EU country

It more difficult to prove if you bring various different brands of cigarettes or tobacco and could be assumed that you are bringing them back to sell on to others.

I thought I saw a sign when returning last week that said unlimited. Could be wrong....

You are correct to a point Marc .

It is effectively unlimited but you put your self at risk of being questioned if you bring more than 800 back...before end 2011 it was 3200.Check gov website for full statement.

You have to prove that they are for your own personal use and if customs not satisfied they will remove them .

So yes bring back as much as you please but just beware you may not get to keep them all.
