BRITS traveling to Spain need to check their bags before going on holiday this summer.
New rules mean Britons are no longer allowed to take two groceries with them.
Since Great Britain left the EU, new rules for taking groceries to Spain have come into force.
This includes all animal products, which fall under two categories – meat and dairy.
Obvious items such as sausage, ham and cheese are banned, but the ban extends to items that contain meat and dairy as part of their ingredients.
These include cakes containing fresh cream and sweets made from gelatin.
This also includes English cheeses like Cornish Brie and Wensleydale, as well as clotted cream fudge.
A jar of Bovril would also break the rules because it contains gelatin, and mince pies and Christmas puddings with suet would also be banned.
There is one exception to the rule – baby milk.
Baby milk powder is allowed as long as it is sealed and in the original packaging.
What is forbidden in Spain?
- All meat products (except 20 kg fish)
- All dairy products (except breast milk powder)
- More than 200 cigarettes
- More than 42 liters of beer
- More than 18 liters of wine
- More than 4 liters of spirits
You are also allowed to take up to 20 kg of fish and up to 2 kg of honey, as well as 2 kg of oysters and live mussels.
Brits don’t just have to pay attention to the food when traveling to Spain.
There are now alcohol and cigarette limit restrictions.
That means you can only take up to four liters of spirits, 42 liters of beer and 18 liters of wine, while cigarettes are limited to 200.
Here are some other Spanish laws you might break while on holiday.
And resorts like Ibiza and Mallorca are cracking down on drunk tourists and illegal raves, and slapping hefty fines on violators.
Some all-inclusive vacations now have an alcohol cap, with only six drinks allowed per day.
