New limits on Duty Free shopping in Turkey

If you want to look at the screenshot you need to open the link below

VOICES understands that a new limit is being imposed on travellers buying goods at duty-free shops before they leave Turkey.

From local media and Londra Gazette, the Turkish newspaper based in London, they say duty-free shops will only be able to sell a maximum of 1 carton of cigarettes, 1 litre of 1 alcoholic drink, 120 ml of 1 cosmetic product (perfume/aftershave) and 1 kilogramme of chocolate can be taken

The decision, published in the Official Gazette on August 8, appears to regulate duty-free sales outlets connected to the Ministry of Customs and Trade. It DOES NOT affect the overall customs limits of travellers.

A screenshot of the new regulation is below:

In addition, warnings will be put up at the stores selling duty-free goods. The signs will be in Turkish, English and Arabic on air and sea border gates.

In the past, alcoholic beverages that exceeded 22 per cent could be taken up to 1 litre, while you could take 3 litres of bottles not exceeding 3 per cent. This new regulation changes this amount to a maximum of 1 litre of alcohol. Also you could apparently take 600 ml of the amount of perfume Ė but this has been reduced to 120 ml.

Voices would advise travellers to be wary of the new restrictions and clarify the issue at duty-free shops.

Re: New limits on Duty Free shopping in Turkey

On my last entry into Bodrum airport in March I was only allowed one bottle of spirits from the Duty Free shop so nothing changed there on the allowance side of things except now enforcing the limit.

Re: New limits on Duty Free shopping in Turkey

Find it often cheaper at the big supermarkets when on offer.

I don't think so, last time I went back to the UK I took 200 Turkish brand ciggys bought in my local shop and they were 50 krush cheaper than duty free. I never take booze back to the UK as when its on supermarket offer it can be cheaper, only ever bring one bottle of booze back as, of course, that is cheaper than buying it here.

Re: New limits on Duty Free shopping in Turkey

You a quite correct Martin - supermarkets are usually much cheaper than Duty Free (so called) especially when they have offers on, which is very regular. Also, I find it hard to believe that restrictions apply to sales in the Turkish Duty Free outlets. The staff there encourage you to buy over the limit, just to boost their sales. That's been our experience, especially when we were smokers and buying cigarettes. We were told "take as may as you like, there are not limits" ! (they were not bothered about you being caught at the end of your journey lol )
