Things you do everyday that are illegal elsewhere

19th August 2014

It's wise when travelling abroad to be aware of the customs and laws of the countries you intend visiting. A study by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) shows that few holidaymakers research local laws when travelling abroad.

One such law to be noted is bringing electronic cigarettes into the country. It is a problem in United Arab Emirates but other countries also have different restrictions and they may be confiscated at customs.

Other laws and customs you may not be aware of, is the wearing of camouflage clothing in Barbados, chewing gum on public transport in Singapore and honking a car horn near a hospital in Cyprus. And you could be fined for swearing in certain parts of Australia such as Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
