Duty-free Tobacco and Alcoholic Beverage Allowances

71.       Currently, the duty-free quantities of tobacco and liquor that local residents are allowed to bring in when entering Hong Kong are not the same as for visitors.  I propose to align them.  I propose to raise the duty-free quantity of alcoholic beverages that Hong Kong residents may bring back from the current 750 millilitres of still wine to one litre and to apply this to all liquors.  I propose, on the other hand, to reduce the quantity of duty-free tobacco that visitors are allowed to bring into Hong Kong to that for local residents.  For example, the quantity of duty-free cigarettes for a visitor would be reduced from the current ten packets to three.  These proposals will take effect after the relevant subsidiary legislation has been passed.
