I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list!

What Can I Bring? The complete list of TSA

What Can I Bring? The complete list of TSA


I don’t know about you, but I like to plan ahead when it comes to packing properly. Especially when travelling to the US. It can be such a pain to be stopped at security screening when all you want to do is get into the airside area and check out the duty-free or eateries. To help facilitate that, it’s always a good idea to know what you can and cannot take with you. It certainly does help to ease your travel experience at the airport.

The list below provides you with details on what you can pack in your carry-on and checked baggage to the US.

But be warned, even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening. It might not even be allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm, appears to have been tampered with or poses other security concerns. It’s worth taking a quick read of the civil penalties for prohibited items for more information.

This list is pretty extensive, but occasionally there’ll be an item not on the list or something that you are not entirely sure about. If that’s the case, you can simply take a picture of it and send a question to AskTSA on Facebook Messenger or Twitter between 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET weekdays and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekends/holidays.

However…the final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.
