Q: What are the rules on liquids, gels and aerosols in hand luggage?

A: Items must be in containers with a maximum capacity of 100ml each.

All containers (not exceeding one litre in total) must be placed in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag which must be completely closed.

Q: Can I carry a container larger than 100ml but partially filled?

A: No, the maximum capacity for the container is 100ml.

Q: What about foams and semi-solids like honey and kaya?

A: The same rules apply for foams and semi-solids. Exemptions can be made for baby food if the infant is also travelling. The same applies to medicines if you have an original letter from a certified medical practitioner.

Q: Are there guidelines on items such as tweezers, nail clippers, penknives, Swiss Army knives, screwdrivers, scissors and toys or ornaments that look like guns?

A: These items should be checked in.
