For a few months now, the Kenyan customs authorities of Nairobi and Mombasa have been equipped with new and effective scanners that can check your incoming baggage.
What was possible to stow and conceal and to pass unscathed to the customs, today risks to be checked and seized, especially if it is alcohol and tobaccos.
Remember that the maximum allowed for cigarettes is 200 pieces (10 packs) or 50 cigars. For spirits, on the other hand, it is not possible to carry more than one bottle of spirits above 13 degrees in a suitcase. In the case of bottles of wine, although many official sources report only one (we refer to the international rules that Kenya has transmitted to the International Air Transport Association) are usually accepted one per suitcase, as well as bottles of perfume. Curiously, in addition to fruit and plants (which must obtain a special authorization), among the bans reported, there are also meat and poultry sausages.
A device for those who want to bring more than one alcoholic or a bottle of wine is to add to those in the suitcase also one purchased at the Duty Free Shop and taken in the bag, still sealed.
We also remind you that any new product with a receipt or packaged by the company that sells it can be subject to taxation. It can also apply to vacuum jars and other packaging, especially if they are products that can also be found in Kenya.
Even products packaged personally in a homemade way could undergo the same treatment, as the plastic of the packages must bear a mark not to be considered illegal, so it is better to use trays or not to wrap them in plastic.
It is recommended in any case more caution at the entrance and the awareness that not all officers who care to enforce the rules that exist, do so to try to clog up a bundle by you.
