Are you buying tobacco products on the internet?

Cigarettes, cigars, rolling tobacco and hookah tobacco may only be imported into the Netherlands if they bear Dutch excise seals. This very rarely the case if you have purchased them via the internet or a mail order company.

Criminal offence

Tobacco products that arrive in the Netherlands without a Dutch excise seal will be seized by Dutch Customs. You also risk a fine and the retrospective collection of taxes. So do not be taken in by e-mails that offer tobacco products much cheaper than is the case in the Netherlands.
