Hello. I need to ask about the goods that i will be bringing in the UK. If I bring "gourmet tuyo" and spices from the Philippines do I need to declare it in UK customs? I only have 3kgs of gourmet tuyo and 500 grams of spices and also cigarettes. Ive read this in the site. What does this mean Declaring goods to customs You must tell customs (known as ‘declaring’) on arrival in the UK if you have goods: over your duty-free allowance that are banned or restricted that you plan to sell Use the red channel at customs if you have something to declare. If there’s no red channel, use the red-point phone to declare goods to customs.
