International Airport Restrictions
In March 2007, restrictions were introduced to limit the amount of liquids, aerosols and gels that can be taken through international customs screening points. Here are some pointers to remember:
Any liquids, aerosols or gels such as drinks, creams, perfumes, sprays, gels and toothpaste must be in containers that do not have a capacity greater than 100 millilitres/grams, and all containers should fit comfortably into a transparent resealable plastic bag. The bag must have a volume no greater than one litre, such as a freezer bag (20cm x 20cm or 25cm x 15cm) sold in most supermarkets. The sum total of the 4 sides of the bag should not exceed 80cm.
Bags sealed with items such as sticky tape, rubber bands, zippers or ribbons will not be accepted.
Containers which have a total capacity greater than 100 millilitres/grams are not permitted through the screening point, even if they are only partially filled.
The bag must be presented separately at international screening points.
To save any hassle at the airport, it is a good idea to have your bag & liquids ready before leaving home.
