No no no no no no no no.  Not even half a cigarette if it is coming through mail.  They are super strict about this.  Also in a few days tobacco will have a 200% tax added.  A pack of cigarettes will be close to 2KD.

Do you want to actually provide some verified sources for this 200% tax?

Minister of Finance announced this.  Just google it

I did google it! it says nothing about 200%, the only mention is an intention to increase the price on energy drinks and cigarettes by 100%!

Get your facts straight before you start dumping them on the internet!

Why do I even bother replying to idiots.  Order your tobacco online buddy.  Hope you choke on it.

Bad idea it will get confiscated, and you would probably be punished for it by law enforcement
