Passengers may not bring liquids (beverages in general, soups, gels, lotions, perfumes, aerosols, etc.) as carry-ons in containers larger than 100 millilitres (maximum of 1 litre total). These containers must be enclosed in an easily sealable, 19 cm x 20 cm transparent plastic bag.
Upon request, passengers must prove authenticity by means of a medical prescription or by tasting/skin testing.
To transport liquid medicines in carry-on luggage, passengers must print out and complete an Authorization Form for Restricted Carry-On Items. This must be sent to INAC/FALSEC with its corresponding medical documentation.
INAC/FALSEC will evaluate the request and approve or reject the exemption. Approved exemptions will be issued an authorization letter, valid for two years, which passengers must have in their possession whenever travelling.
Prior to receiving this authorization letter, passengers must carry a doctor’s certificate (confirming the need to use the medicine), which may be requested by security agents at screening checkpoints.
