    The Canaries are considered to be outside the EU so the following applies:
    Tobacco allowances

    You can bring in one from the following list:
    • 200 cigarettes
    • 100 cigarillos
    • 50 cigars
    • 250g of tobacco
    Or you can combine these allowances. For example, if you bring in 100 cigarettes (half your full allowance) you can also bring in 25 cigars (half your full allowance). This would make up your full tobacco allowance. You can't go over your total tobacco allowance.
    You cannot combine alcohol and tobacco allowances.
