    It depends upon which country you're arriving from.

    I think you have to declare them first, then they'll inspect them or something I think

    As far as I can tell, you can bring back 2kg per person. If you're unsure about anything though, as orphan_black suggested, declare them to customs after you've collected your luggage from the carousel. They will be able to guide you on whether you have to dispose of some or pay duty.

    It will have to be 4kg because you and your brother are only allowed to carry 2kg each
