Any cameras, video cameras, or other objects more frequently purchased abroad must be declared to customs authorities on departure from any non-EU country, so that customs duties are not levied on return.
Any traveller coming from a non-EU country can carry items purchased up to a value of € 175 in their personal baggage without incurring customs duties as long as they are not intended to be resold for commercial profit.
If purchases exceed € 175, full customs duties will be incurred.
Tax-free shopping is available to non-EU residents. Customs duties will be refunded on goods purchased in authorised shops up to a value of € 175 on presentation of a receipt when leaving the EU.
