Hello All!

I know that when travelling to EU from outside the EU, it is forbidden to bring any kind of dairy and meat products.

 

But I have no idea if it is also not allowed to bring such products to Turkey from another country. I tried to search in google but couldn´t find an answer

Does anyone know anything about this??? I really want to bring some cheese for my family

 

thanks

It depends on the type of cheese and how it is packaged. I brought some sealed cheese (so covered in a type of wax, not cut in pieces) packaged in vacum plastic to Turkey without any problems.

thanks 

but mabe you were just lucky not to be controlled

I also know many people bringing cheese or sausages from Turkey to Germany and never got caught as they don´t check every single luggage. But if they find out, one might have a lot of problems...

There must be lots of controls in this holidays period....If you are travelling from an EU airport, Chocolate is allowed but cheese is not allowed except very few kinds. It depends on consistency and packages like Barba_mama said...

I always bring and brought just a few days ago, too, soft french cheese that are nonvacuumed and sausages without any problem from France to Turkey. Once I brought even 8 soft cheese.

And one month ago, my friend from Turkey brought me turkish sausages (vacuumed) and sucuk without any problem.

I didn´t have so many chance, then! {#emotions_dlg.sad} Because when traveling back from Paris, last July, they took my soft unvacumed french cheese away... I have already brought to my family french cheese several times before...

So...{#emotions_dlg.unsure}
