From a non-EU country

Bringing back foodstuffs from outside the EU is restricted, due to the risk of spreading animal diseases. The same import restrictions apply to foodstuffs brought back by travellers and to foodstuffs received as a gift consignment or foodstuffs ordered online. As a rule, you are not allowed to bring in or receive meat, meat products, milk or dairy products from non-EU countries. A maximum of 20 kilos of fishery products (or one gutted fish) can be brought in or received.

You are allowed to receive e.g. the following foodstuffs

  • chocolate
  • sweets
  • cookies
  • bread and
  • cakes,

if the products are not mixed or stuffed with meat products.
