taking cigerettes in to goa

i've noticed a few posts that suggest there are limitations on how much alcohol you can take in to goa, does this apply to cigerettes too, as i was gonna buy 5x 200 packs at mcr airport

kind regards

I'm fairly sure the limit is 200 cigarettes, the same as it is here.

Get them there they are very cheap. However, do be aware there are some fakes about. I usually smoke Bensons or Rothman Royals at home but out there i smoke their own Indian cigarette 'Gold Flake' they are about 8quid for 200.

In my experience, it just depends. Sometimes you'll be OK, sometimes you'll be hauled over the coals and have to fork out quite a bit to get them back. Or someone might just decide they need them more than you do and take them. Can I ask, with that many fags, how long are you going for?!!! You can tell I'm a smug ex-smoker, can't you!!

don,t buy from manchester airport as much more expensive and can only take 200 threw and they do search some bags on way in.however sometimes duty free open on the way into goa and charge slightly more around 10 pounds 200,on way out even cheaper around 5.50 for 200 lambert and butler.
