    Hi guys, I'm hoping somebody can help me with this!
    I'm currently living in France and did my christmas shopping to take back to my family in the UK next week, and I want to check that I'll be able to fly with all the stuff I purchased, as I am confused about the limits and because Switzerland isn't part of the EU...

    I intend to fly back with:
    4 bottles of wine
    2 50ml bottles of apperatif wine
    cheese
    saussison
    pate (in glass jars)

    Which limits do I have to abide by? Also, is it different as they were all bought in France and not duty free? I have receipts for proof if asked, but am unsure how much I can take?

    Thanks!

    Geneva airport has an exit directly into France; as such it's considered an EU airport.

    Therefore you can happily stroll down the blue channel once back in the UK.
