Customs

Travellers entering Hong Kong at entry points are required to declare to Customs officers the quantity of dutiable goods (liquor, tobacco, cigarette and cigar) which are in excess of the duty-free concessions.

Duty-free Concessions

A passenger of the age of 18 or above is allowed to bring into Hong Kong free of duty, for his/her own use, the following quantities of dutiable commodities:

An incoming passenger aged 18 or above, who does not hold a Hong Kong Identity Card, is eligible for the following duty-free concessions: one litre of alcoholic liquor; and 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 250 grams of other manufactured tobacco.

An incoming passenger aged 18 or above, who holds a Hong Kong Identity Card and has spent 24 hours or longer outside Hong Kong, is eligible for the following duty-free concessions: 750 millilitres of still wine; and 60 cigarettes or 15 cigars or 75 grams of other manufactured tobacco.

To verify a passenger's eligibility for the duty-free concessions, Customs officers may require an incoming passenger to produce his/her Hong Kong Identity Card in order to verify whether he/she has spent 24 hours or longer outside Hong Kong.

Note: An incoming passenger, who fails to declare or makes a false or incomplete declaration to a Customs officer on the quantity of dutiable goods in his/her possession which are in excess of the duty-free concessions, is liable to prosecution.

Some personal protection devices like the spray mace which are legal in some countries are prohibited in Hong Kong. To avoid any unnecessary delays, please follow the guidelines from Hong Kong International Airport by visiting their website at: www.hongkongairport.com/eng/aguide/securitychk.html

There are no restrictions on currencies being brought in or taken out of Hong Kong.
