Can they detain me for that? Yes For how long can they keep me in custody/detained before allowing me to leave (either into the USA or back to my home country)? Indefinitely, but usually less than 48 hours while they work on removing you from the USA as expeditiously as possible. You can google for countless real life examples. More importantly, ...

As a developer traveling from Australia to Europe (working through my wife's bucket list) every year, I typically carry two laptops, 2-3 external drives and multiple mobile devices. I have been asked to power up the devices on the way to the UK at a middle-Eastern hub because it's supposedly UK rules. Nobody asked me to verify the drives. Never been asked ...

We use the very same model of clock in scrabble tournaments. Our players fly all over the USA and the world with these clocks, mostly in hand luggage without any problems. You should be fine.

It's unlikely the TSA would prohibit these. Generally speaking, "moist" things are not restricted, only liquids. From the TSA website This sounds like it falls into that category.

On your way to Paris, you don't have to check in or go through security at Atlanta. Your bags will be checked through and it will be just like a domestic connection as far as you're concerned. On your way home, you will need to go through passport control and customs in Atlanta. You'll go through passport control, pick up your checked bags and take them ...

Yes, you must remove it from the bag for X-ray: A nebulizer, CPAP, BiPAP and APAP must be removed from its carrying case and undergo X-ray screening. Facemasks and tubing may remain in the case. You may provide a clear plastic bag to place the device through the X-ray. Am I allowed to carry my CPAP machine onboard the plane, do I have to remove it from my ...

Very few items are to be removed from your carry on and put into the trays. At the moment it's laptops and tablets. At some screening points it's the little bag of liquids. Everything else, they don't care where you put it but they care about time. If you have, despite all the signs, video screens, and behaviours of the people in front of you in line, ...

Yes - you can take it along. You will have to remove it from your bag to go through security so keep an eye on it. (And your laptop and your phone and your car keys at the same time ... darn.) BTW, not endorsing a product here - but there are now "travel" CPAPS that are much more compact yet work great. I've got a dreamstation go w/heated humidifier and ...

My wife & I each carried a CPAP machine in our carry-on luggage while traveling over the past few weeks. With TSA there wasn't even a question. One non-TSA screener asked to pull the devices out to confirm that they actually operated.

Your can carry on your CPAP. As a medical device, it does not count towards your carry-on allowance. For both regular security and pre-check, the device can stay in a dedicated case. If you're carrying it in e.g. a backpack, however, it should be removed and placed in a bin.

I happened to chat about this with my doctor recently. She said that you are indeed allowed to bring a CPAP device on the plane with you, and that you really shouldn't put one in your checked luggage. The TSA confirms this, and has a short rundown of how the security screening process will go. Since the security screening equipment and plastic luggage ...

I carried my Cpap device to/from USA with no problems. I contacted the airline in advance to enquire as I'd not done this before and - like you - I was unsure of the procedure. Without any hesitation they updated my booking to two pieces of hand luggage (one medical). Cabin crew too were helpful and asked if I needed to sit near a power outlet. At TSA and in ...
