Re: how else can i prove cigarettes are for my own personal use

I would also put on the receipt the total amount you paid for the holiday on your card and then how that amount is broken down per person . It would also be helpful if you can show the repayments being paid into your bank.
You have to be sure that you have covered everything that they might try to twist and use against you.

Please ensure you do not divulge any  information which could identify you as Border Force may take your posts here and attempt to quote parts of them out of context in court in order to try to discredit you.

Re: how else can i prove cigarettes are for my own personal use

Hi  ,
i was wondering if i take my car abroad and on the way back bf stop and want to question me ,if i delay the interview can they seize my cigarrettes and car or just the cigarrettes? I know what your going to say about taking a vehicle abroad but as a foot passenger its a nightmare to get to belgium easily and cheaply ,done the coach version too and thats a pain too.The only realistic option really is eurostar to brussels then onwards to de panne (adinkerke)if i am contemplating using my feet

If a delayed interview was agreed the goods and possibly vehicle would be detained until such time as liability to forfeiture was established.

Please ensure you do not divulge any information which could identify you as Border Force will use your posts here as evidence against you in court.
