For whatever reason the subject comes up in context of the Bill introduced in New Zealand with respect to Maori. In addition to that the article also has specific information regading kirpan: The Sikh Centre brought to the select committee the need to be sensitive to the diverse cultures and beliefs of individuals passing through airport control to ...

I asked https://www.facebook.com/AskTSA and they've told me that it is not allowed in carry-on bags. (12:44:55 PM) Ask TSA: We're glad you asked! Rolling pins must be packed in checked bags. Safe travels! -Kirsey (12:46:42 PM) 可买: So I cannot bring them onto the plane with my carry-on luggage? (I don't have any checked in luggage) (12:53:15 ...

Why wasn’t the knife taken out at Russian airport ? Probably because they missed it during screening. Airport security has been known to miss actual explosives in peoples bags, so a tiny knife is not a particular surprise. Were we made to sign only because we were in transit You were forced to sign a paper because Kazakhstan and the surrounding ...

The EU has banned all imports of whale products since 1982. Penalties can include imprisonment and large fines. Poland explicitly prohibits import by travellers of products of CITES species (no exceptions) References Do not bring whale meat home from Iceland The European Union and Trade in Wild Fauna and Flora CITES

Karlson beautifully took care of the international aspect of this situation wherein unfortunately you cannot carry a kirpan as carry-on on yourself. But, since Mr.Sardarji is a religious person and it is possible that he would like to make his family happy without making sacrifices with his beliefs I would like to provide more information with regard to the ...

Here's what Esbit says: Is it allowed to carry Esbit solid fuel on commercial airplanes? It is not allowed to carry Esbit solid fuel in your hand baggage. With regard to the provisions of the checked baggage we recommend to directly check with your airline. If you contact your airline, you should refer to the UN number of our solid fuel, which reads ...

I'm a fellow Sikh, and unfortunately there isn't much you can do in this situation. You will have to remove your kirpan and place it in check-in luggage as posted by @karlson. Some sikhs wear these small kirpans in their necklace, Others don't travel by plane at all. While traveling do remove kirpan. You should do ardaas before and after, Guru Sahib sadh ...

We have called the Spice Jet customer care and they have confirmed that they can take the copper vessel pots under the category of Kitchen Ware in the luggage only, not on cabin baggage.

No. Restricted items may only be carried in checked luggage. However, Singapore Airlines permits you to check at least 30 kg for free, so I would suggest you simply check your carry-on luggage.

Knives don't go in carry-on, period. (maybe really small ones, depending on the country.) The material the knife is made of doesn't matter. Ceramic, wood (ebony will hold a nice edge), bone, flint and so on have all made fine weapons millenia before steel. If you do pack a non-metallic weapon in the darker corners of your carry-on, and they find it, you ...

Either the knife was not noticed, or the blade was considered short enough to pass under Russian rules. This is irrelevant though: just because I can legally bring an apple through security in Singapore doesn't mean Customs is obliged to let it through in Australia. The consequences of having prohibited items depends on local law and the discretion of the ...

TSA Doesn't List Drones The closest things to drones I could find in TSA's database of packable items are radio controlled helicopters which apparently can be taken on a plane both as check-in as well as carry-on luggage. TSA even gives packing advice. Quoting from the linked site: Search Results For: RC helicopter Check or Carry-on You may ...

I have heard that people have carried the dried product on board without issue (both in hand luggage and hold luggage, I think) and see no reason why they should not be able to. TSA for example does not identify it specifically as a prohibited item and in the UK for example, caffeine is not a controlled drug (eg mate is available in health food shops, over ...

95%/100% alcohol is officially considered a Hazardous Material, and should never be taken on an aircraft without at least obtaining permission from the airline (which would normally not be granted). Exact regulations/fines will vary from country to country, but to use the US as an example if you were caught transporting this on a plane you could be liable ...

In addition to international standards for prohibited items, air carriers can add other items they will not (officially) allow to be taken on board. So each airline may have different rules, though they are all almost identical and the main differences are in what they charge extra for or in the items they will refuse to pay compensation for in case of ...

Short answer: according to EU legislation, a stick deodorant can reasonably be included in the ‘liquids, aerosols and gels’ category. I think that the relevant legislation in this case is the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/1998 of 5 November 2015 laying down detailed measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation ...

NIDirect (Northern Ireland government website) has a more specific list of some items, and in particular specify that you CAN indeed take a hairdryer, in both checked and hand luggage.

After posting the TSA information below, I noticed the ryanair tag. Here's what they have to say about sharp objects, emphasis added: 8.10.1.2 Pointed/edged Weapons & Sharp Objects; pointed or bladed articles capable of causing injury, including axes & hatchets, cleavers, arrows and darts, crampons (grappling iron, hooked bar of iron, or plate ...

While I certainly understand your concerns about signing something you don't understand, in this particular case it's nothing to worry about. Obviously, full name of the passenger, flight number, details and signature of the person who made [sic] the protocol are obvious. The parts in Russian say: Flight number 907 on the route Deli Found and seized ...

No. You cannot. There is strict control over liquids and you can only pass security with 100ml bottles. Since carry-on must pass through security, you cannot have a 750ml bottle with you. When you buy Duty-Free at the airport or even non duty-free, you buy them past security and they are items the airport considers secure. There is a subtlety which may ...

Many household cleaners are liquids, so they'd be restricted by the 3-1-1 liquids rule for carry-on luggage. Beyond that, TSA rules and FAA hazardous material rules would prohibit a number of common cleaning chemicals in carry-on or checked bags: bleach, flammable liquids, flammable aerosols (and non-toiletry non-flammable aerosols in carry-on bags), etc... ...

Short answer: To be sure both, and check with the customs of the place you're flying to if it's an international flight. The airport security will have it's own rules, probably based on national or international standards. The airline will also follow those rules but may impose additional rules or requirements. Finally the country you are flying to may ...

You can't be sure of it. I've had an umbrella like that confiscated by security in Brussels Charleroi.

When you refer to "Mustard Oil", I assume the first of the definitions on Wikipedia is applicable: "A fatty vegetable oil resulting from pressing the seeds". This, in my personal opinion, is food. On the German Zoll's website you can find the following information regarding "The private import of food and animal feed": "The import of food and animal feed ...

For a definitive answer, you should contact the airline Me thinks it will not be allowed, both in check-in luggage or hand luggage. One internet reference : https://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/forums/europe-scandinavia-the-nordics/norway/esbit-solid-fuel-tablets-in-check-in-luggage And Eurowings own documents: https://www.eurowings.com/en/legal-...

At the end of the day, the airline. Airline get full control over what goes into the plane's cabin and hold, so they should be your first point of contact. They will also generally be aware of the airport (or, rather, government) restrictions of the day. However, since airport security is run by the government, they've also got their own rules that you ...

Most if not all airlines prohibit carrying fuel canisters onboard, both as checked and as carry-on luggage. It is a compressed canister containing flammable liquid. The TSA page on prohibited items confirms this. So flying from the US with the fuel canister is definitely a no, regardless of whether it can be imported in India. The stove without fuel ...

For checked bags, airlines basically care about only two things: How heavy and/or unwieldy is it? Is there a risk that it may catch fire (or explode) during transport, or damage other bags it's transported with? Neither sounds like it will be a problem for you 3 kg steel pipe. Police and/or customs at your destination might worry whether your pipe is ...

Christmas crackers aren't allowed because they contain explosives. Airlines probably mention them explicitly because lots of people were getting them confiscated at security. There's no reason you can't bring an Easter egg, as long as it doesn't break any of the general rules of carriage for hand baggage. The most likely one would be the liquids/gels rule, ...
