Importing wine for personal use.

Post Posted: Fri Jan 16, 2009 4:09 pm

Hi,
can anyone offer any advice to this lady from Jo-burg South Africa.This is a copy of a post from elsewhere.

Good day, please can anyone help. My husband and I are moving to Portugal at the end of 2009. Nobody seems to be able to tell me whether we are allowed to bring our wine collection (+- 250bottles) without paying duty. The way I read the conditions for bringing personal effects into the country is that as long as they are the house contents everything comes dutyfree. Has anybody brought in wines or do I have to have some type of authorization? Also, must the descriptions of the house contents for the luggage certificate be quite specific or can we just say eg 1 fridge or must it be 1 (brand) fridge plus serial number?
