Luggage and souvenirs

If you are travelling to or leaving the Netherlands, be aware that there are some goods you cannot take in your luggage.

What am I not allowed to take with me?

Weapons, money and counterfeit items are subject to restrictions. The same applies to some souvenirs, like art, antiques or parts of protected animals. You can find a list of restricted or prohibited products on the Tax and Customs Administration website.

Choose your situation

What you are allowed to import from and export to the Netherlands depends on your situation and whether you are travelling within and outside the European Union (EU).
