Hi Srimal,

You will find that all airlines, including Mihin, will only sell this on flights FROM Sri Lanka. Selling them on inbound flights has been forbidden since the import was forbidden, something like 4-5 years back. Same applies for dutyfree shops, the ones in Arrivals do not sell but those in Departures do. Sorry...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

You are not allowed to bring more than one carton, but actually no one will check your bags. I brought three cartons and had no problems, and all my friends did too. Just put them inside your luggage.

What's the allowance? An open carton or an open pack?
