Customs quotas and exemptions for each type of merchandise are set by the customs authorities of each country. These quotas and exemptions are harmonized within the European Union.
To view customs exemptions for each destination, visit the IATA TRAVEL CENTRE website directly by clicking here (updated regularly).

For indirect flights with a connection, the passenger must go through another security check in order to board the next flight at the transit airport. Passengers may bring Liquids, Aerosols, and Gels (LAG) purchased in the BuYPARIS DUTY FREE stores located in Roissy-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports. The items will then be returned to you in a sealed airport security bag (a “STEB” bag).
