There is nothing worse than starting a trip badly. When we have a problem at the airport, and we have to throw or leave something that we cherish on the ground, the joy is tarnished, and the tensions increase. It is essential to be very clear about what cannot be carried on the plane to prevent complications.
The list of forbidden objects in the cabin, in hand luggage, and even in the hold (in the suitcase you send), is extensive and the ideal is to review it well.
For newbies, we highlight a tip: do not try to carry the forbidden things by hiding them somewhere or disguising them. Security scanners detect everything, and if they find you want to do something wrong, they will take it out of you. It is not negotiated: it does not matter if it is memory, if it is essential to you, valuable, etc. The security forces keep it.
