What goods can I bring in to Scotland?
You can bring most everyday items with you when you visit, but there are some goods that you are not allowed to bring, such as firearms. There are other goods that have a limit to the amount you can bring in, such as alcohol and tobacco.
The rules are different depending on where you are travelling from. You can find out more from the UK Government's advice on bringing in goods.
Can I bring in medicine?
- Yes, you can bring in your own personal medicines and do not need to declare them to UK Customs if they are for yourself. However, in case there is an issue in the UK or abroad, it is a good idea to have a letter from your doctor confirming your need for the medication.
- Always carry medicines in a correctly labelled container as issued by the pharmacist.
- There may be restrictions on the amount of drugs that you can bring into the country.
- Before you travel, seek advice about the requirements from HM Revenue & Customs.
