When travelling from an EU country (list of members below) and airports on mainland Spain to the UK you do not have to pay tax or duty on goods you have bought in another EU country as long as the tax was included in the price when you purchased the items, the goods are for your own use and are being transported to the UK by you. This includes gifts, but does not cover any item that is to be used as a payment or resold.
The duty free/tax allowance from Murcia Airport is as follows:
|Fortified Wine (port or sherry)||20 litres|
|Value of goods, gifts & souvenirs||£430 for air passengers|
