No. You may not carry live ammunition on to an aircraft in the US. (This is what you ask about - bringing onto, not checking in.) You may not bring live ammunition into Britain unless you have a permit, and I strongly doubt that "wanting a souvenir" would be considered a legitimate reason for the grant of a permit. In any case it is unlawful to ...

Aside from whether you can bring it onto the plane, and whether you can bring it into the UK, it is illegal to export any ammunition at all from the US without a license under ITAR rules. Not to mention that fact that as a non-resident alien, you are not even supposed to be in possession of firearms or ammunition (there are some exceptions for sporting ...

You will have to check with your airline if you are allowed to bring any ammunition in your checked baggage. I can tell you that TSA will not allow you to bring any ammunition in your carry-on bags, even if it is clearly a souvenir. When I was at Alcatraz, I bought this souvenir bullet keychain: I put it in my shoe at the security checkpoint, along with the ...

As an add on to existing answers consider your question Can I bring a single shot of live ammo onto the plane from US to UK as a souvenir? as being seen by security authorities as looking something like Can I bring a single shot informal firearm onto an aircraft if I also carry the single live ammunition round with me but separately from the firearm ? ...

In addition to the UK import rules as described by Michael Seifert above, you will need to comply with TSA regulations for what you can and can't bring onto a plane. And the news there isn't good for you: It is forbidden to carry-on (any) ammunition. It may be possible to check ammunition provided you pack it properly in special packaging, but you would have ...

It is not permitted to bring ammunition into the UK without a permit. According to this brochure from the UK Border Force (p. 14–15): There are certain goods you are not allowed to bring into the UK – this is to protect society, animal and public health and the environment. ... The following are also banned but in certain cases may be brought into the UK ...

I cannot give a personal account because I have only been to Taoyuan airport (where nobody objected to me taking pictures—in fact, nobody ever objected to me taking pictures at airports even with a DSLR camera). However, I will note that Kaohsiung airport, the second-largest airport in Taiwan, advertises its observation deck for plane spotting and other ...

Although I had not seen that exception to Taiwan, I had previously read that photographing airports is prohibited and nearly always avoid taking photos in airports but I see people do it often and there are plenty of photos of airports around. One of the few times I took photos in an airport was in Panama and I was stopped after taking 3-4 photos. They then ...

That is not truth, visit TPE on google maps, there's thousands of pictures upload by visitors. And at least, I never heard anyone get into trouble because taking photos in air port :) update ok, you can also check other air port in Taiwan, RMQ (Taichung) KHH (Kaohsiung) or TSA (the air port actual locate in Taipei) I think making life log is totally fine, ...

As others have said and implied, this would at least look like smuggling. Don't try it. I'm not familiar with the current COVID regulations at the Hong Kong airport, but why do you have to meet someone in person? If you know where the item is, and you are dealing with an honest person who would give it to you personally, why can't you get them to deliver it ...
