IMPORTANT SECURITY UPDATE - International Travellers
Monday, 25 June 2018
From June 30 2018, passengers departing from Australian international airports must presented all powders separately for inspection at the international security checkpoint. This includes everything from cosmetics – such as powdered foundation, blush and other similar items – through to baby formula, ground or powdered coffee, sugar, spices and more.
Further restrictions apply to ‘inorganic powders’, which the Australian Government defines as “a powder not consisting of, or derived from, living matter”, like salt, sand, talcum powder, powdered deodorant, foot powder, detergents and cleaning products. These products will need to be carried in a container no larger than 350 millilitres or 350 grams.
