There are a variety of customs and culture in the Congo as each community may have their own traditions. Casual clothing is acceptable, however keep in mind that the Congolese take great pride in their appearance, and an overly casual appearance may be frowned on. Photographing military, government, and banking buildings is prohibited.
Visitors to Congo do not need to pay import tax on one bottle of spirits and one bottle of wine and an amount of perfume reasonable for personal use. Men may import up to 200 cigarettes/50 cigars/227g of tobacco, while women may only bring cigarettes. Cameras may be temporarily imported by tourists, however radios, audio equipment and gifts are subject to import tax.
