Does anyone know if it is legal (in terms of customs regulations) to take a 'jamon' to the UK by 'plane, inside a suitcase checked as hold luggage?
I don't see why it shouldn't be but I have a nagging doubt.
the above site gives you lots of info, it says on this site
" Any meat or meat products are permitted from other European Member States or Andorra, the Canary Islands, the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Norway and San Marino. A combined total of 5kgs of meat and dairy products are permitted from The Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. You cannot bring back meat or meat products from any other European country"
hope that helps
I alwayus take some back, it's fine, don't worry.
