New Cigarette Duty Free Law Takes Effect Over Pesach


smokenCustoms officials remind Yomtov travelers that those leaving the country for Pesach and returning after April 1, 2013 should be reminded that they will only be permitted to bring one carton of cigarettes back or alternatively, 125 grams of tobacco.

To date one may return to with cartons of duty free cigarettes but as of next month on the Gregorian calendar, that amount is being cut in half.
