Cigarette prices in Bulgaria

Being a chain smoker means that you are most probably going to find yourself on the hunt for some cigarettes while on your holiday in a rental villa with a swimming pool in Bulgaria. So it is really useful to come prepared with information about the quality and price of cigarettes in Bulgaria. Here is all you need to know about the cigarette prices, importing and exporting cigarettes and the popular cigarette brands in Bulgaria.


According to research, Bulgaria has some of the cheapest cigarettes both in the EU and in the entire world. The average price of a pack of cigarettes in Bulgaria varies, usually from 2.50 to 2.90 euros. It is in fact quite cheap considering the prices of a pack of cigarettes in some other European countries such as the UK, Germany, Norway, and Ireland where prices can reach as high as 10 Euro for a single pack.

For those of you who are planning on coming prepared with cigarettes from home, it is good to keep in mind that there are some regulations. It is important to note that those restrictions are much lower for countries that are part of the EU. It is always advisable that you check the restrictions and requirements for importing cigarettes in any country you are about to visit beforehand so you know just what to prepare and what to expect. Moreover, you really don’t want to have your extra tobacco products confiscated on your way to the holiday destination as well.



If you are a citizen of the EU, you should have no trouble carrying about 200 cigarettes (10 packs) with you while you are visiting Bulgaria. Keep in mind that only people over the age of 18 have the right to bring the given amount of cigarettes along with them or any at all. You can also bring your own tobacco and smoke it in any way you prefer. The restriction, in that case, is not more than 250 grams of tobacco. You are also allowed to import some cigars (50 at most) or cigarillos (100 pieces that should each weigh under 3 grams). Any sort of cigarillo weighting over that minimum of 3 grams is considered a cigar.

The restrictions we have listed above apply to both the EU and all the countries worldwide. EU citizens, however, may be allowed to carry as much as 800 cigarettes (40 packs). This is largely due to the EU policy for free transportation and open market. The quantities we listed above may be multiplied by 4 if you are coming from a country that’s a member of the EU. This would make about 400 cigarillos, 200 cigars and about a kilogram of tobacco. Keep in mind that different EU countries have the right to pose different restrictions for those amounts so make sure you check the up-to-date information about the conditions in the country you are headed into.

Generally, you are highly likely going to be allowed to carry the full amount given above as long as you can prove that it is for personal use only. There is also the condition that if you are suspected of carrying the amount of tobacco for retail purposes, the authorities can look into you more thoroughly and with greater attention. One example of such inspection is figuring out of you are an owner of retails business and checking out the packaging of the tobacco items you are caring along with you.

Our advice: Do not waste your luggage space with cigarettes. The price of cigarettes in Bulgaria is much cheaper than the price in your country!
