Rightfully, you are only allowed One liter (33!.8 fl!. oz!.) of alcoholic beverages if:
You are 21 years old!.
It is for your own use or as a gift!.
It does not violate the laws of the state in which you arrive!.
However, most customs agents won't say anything if you have 2 bottles or so!.
Federal regulations allow you to bring back more than one liter of alcoholic beverage for personal use, but, as with extra tobacco, you will have to pay duty and Internal Revenue Service tax!.
While Federal regulations do not specify a limit on the amount of alcohol you may bring back for personal use, unusual quantities are liable to raise suspicions that you are importing the alcohol for other purposes, such as for resale!. CBP officers are authorized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to make on-the-spot determinations that an importation is for commercial purposes, and may require you to obtain a permit to import the alcohol before releasing it to you!. If you intend to bring back a substantial quantity of alcohol for your personal use, you should contact the port through which you will be re-entering the country, and make prior arrangements for entering the alcohol into the United States!.

also, you should be aware that state laws might limit the amount of alcohol you can bring in without a license!. If you arrive in a state that has limitations on the amount of alcohol you may bring in without a license, that state law will be enforced by CBP, even though it may be more restrictive than federal regulations!. We recommend that you check with the state government before you go abroad about their limitations on quantities allowed for personal importation and additional state taxes that might apply!.

In brief, for both alcohol and tobacco, the quantities discussed in this booklet as being eligible for duty-free treatment may be included in your $800 or $1,600 exemption, just as any other purchase would be!. But unlike other kinds of merchandise, amounts beyond those discussed here as being duty-free are taxed, even if you have not exceeded, or even met, your personal exemption!. For example, if your exemption is $800 and you bring back three liters of wine and nothing else, two of those liters will be dutiable!. Federal law prohibits shipping alcoholic beverages by mail within the United States!.

I am including a link to explain things better and help you determine how much you expect to pay if you bring a lot of alcohol back!.


yeah you can but as before stated you have a certain limit that you can bring!. I believe its like a litre per person!. And then you have to declare it to the airline just like you would a gun!. so make sure when you check your baggage at the airport you ask the person there about that and you should be fine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Generally 1 liter of alcohol can be brought into the country duty free by anyone 21 and older!. Taxes and duty may be assessed with higher quantities!. There is no federal limit on the amount of liquor imported, but you must also comply with state laws where the liquor is going!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

they will probably have a limit!.!.!.!.!. usually just 2 bottles of wine per person, but you might be able to sneak back with a couple extra!. it worked for me but it's also a lil risky!.!.!.!.!. you might get a good bottle of booze confiscated !Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes, it is likely they will allow you to bring alcohol back, it could be risky though!. Depending on the country's laws, they may confiscate it!. So bring it at your own risk!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It's like 1 or 2 bottles per person!. I can't remember!. I've brought booze back from Mexico but do not remember the amount!.

You may want to check with customs before you leave though!. They will tell you!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
