Regarding Permanent Change of Station to Nebraska and shipment of alcohol with household goods.
The Commission has received a large number of requests for information on how to proceed with a move to the state for military stationed overseas. There is no permission required from the state of Nebraska to import alcohol for personal use into the state. This page can serve as a requested letter for transportation purposes.
Nebraska Revised Statute 53-194.03 restricts the personal importation of alcohol into the state to 9 liters per adult per month:
Transportation of liquor into state; forbidden; when; penalty.
(1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, it shall be unlawful for any person to transport, import, bring, ship, or cause to be transported, imported, brought, or shipped into the State of Nebraska for the personal use of the possessor, his or her family, or guests a quantity of alcoholic liquor in excess of nine liters in any one calendar month.
(2) Subsection (1) of this section does not apply to a person importing alcoholic liquor from a holder of a retail direct sales shipping license or its equivalent, which alcoholic liquor is for personal use or for use by such person’s family or guests, if the total amount imported by such person in any one calendar year does not exceed one hundred eight liters.
(3) Alcoholic liquor transported, imported, brought, or shipped into the State of Nebraska in violation of this section shall be seized by the commission and disposed of in the manner provided for contraband. Any person violating this section shall be guilty of a Class IV misdemeanor.
There is currently no ability for the NLCC to issue an exemption to that 9 liter limitation.
