Hi all,coming over to Spain next week from UK and I was wondering if you or anyone you know has entered Spain as a non-resident after Brexit and had to show proof of a return flight as per the rules. On a lighter note has anyone been pulled up for bringing in chocolate in their baggage from the Uk . I can find a UK gov Environment and rural affairs fact sheet that states as long as it has 50% or less milk/ dairy products it's okay

I can't help with the flights question but I've never, ever heard of anyone in all my years of coming and living in Spain being in trouble for bringing some chocolate here 😅

Hi Davy

If no one can confirm before, one of our members, Portet, is flying in on Wednesday. I’m sure he’ll be posting his experience.

As for the chocolate, unless a sort for dietary requirements, they do sell chocolate in Spain 🤪🥂

Hi Steve, Brexit rules do not allow meats, dairy produce etc etc to be brought in from outside EU. So chocolate might be covered by this rule

Hi Angebadge but chocolate in Spain not as good as UK chocolate ( different cocoa content) so I'll go out on a limb and say you are maybe not British. I would be interested in hearing what Portet says. It's to show to the Spanish authorities you won't be a financial burden on them and you can fund your stay.

Correct, you can't bring dairy products in or anything containing dairy. I've no idea if this is being enforced though.

Just my twopence worth...... If it ain't Cadburys chocolate it's not worth having. Continental chocolate, American chocolate etc is waxy and full of vegetable oil and tastes rotten😋

Hi Davy

I am from the U.K.!😉

My “weapon of choice” is Cadbury’s milk, widely available, or Lindt salted. Or anybody’s salted really. I can really pig out on salted chocolate 😍😍😍🤪🥂
