Cigarette imports cut

SMOKERS bringing in more than 60 cigarettes at a time to Slovakia from Ukraine must declare them at the border, according to the Narodná Obroda.

Customs duty is still only levied on amounts of more than 200.

The increased monitoring is because some people have been making several round-trips a day to Ukraine to bring in large amounts of cigarettes and sell them for profit in Slovakia, the daily reports.
