Duty free shops warned over Jersey allowances
The States said Duty Free shops had been aggressively promoting packs of 400 or even 1,000 cigarettes.
The personal allowance for bringing cigarettes into the island is 200.
Some shops have taken action, but others have not, according to the Home Affairs Department.
Jersey Customs Officers warned people they would be charged the duty on all cigarettes brought into the island over the customs allowances.
Officers said people were buying large packs of tax-free cigarettes without knowing they had to pay duty on them.
