Cabin Baggage regulations/guidelines at UAE airports

Guests travelling or transiting through UAE airports will have to follow new hand (cabin) baggage regulations, scheduled to come into effect soon.

  • Carry all liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag with a maximum capacity of 1 litre.
  • Each Guest may carry only one such bag, which must be presented separately from other cabin baggage at security screening checkpoints.
  • The contents of no container must exceed 100 millilitres of LAGs.
  • Exceptions may be made for medications, baby milk/foods and special dietary or other medical requirements.

Cabin Baggage regulations/guidelines at any airport

  • Present your transparent re-sealable plastic bag containing liquids, aerosols and gels separately at security checkpoints.
  • Take off your jackets and/or coats and present these for screening.
  • Present laptops and other large electronic equipment for screening separately.

Cabin Baggage regulations for duty free purchases

  • Carry LAG items purchased at airport retail outlets or on board the aircraft in a Security Tamper-Evident Bag (STEB). Generally, these bags are provided by the retail outlet where the LAG is purchased.
  • To avoid confiscation, the security tamper-evident bag should not be opened before going through security checkpoints.
  • If transiting between airports, do not open the bag until you pass through the final security checkpoint at your last airport of transit.

About Liquids, Aerosols and Gels

  • Water, drinks, soups, syrups, jams, stews, sauces and pastes.
  • Foods in sauces or containing a high liquid content.
  • Creams, lotions, cosmetics and oils, perfumes, sprays, gels, including hair and shower gel.
  • Contents of pressurized containers, including shaving foam and deodorants.
  • Pastes including toothpaste, liquid-solid mixtures, mascara, lip gloss or lip balm and any item of similar consistency at room temperature.

Remember, these restrictions only apply to cabin baggage — you could still pack your liquids, aerosols and gels in your checked baggage if you wish to.

  • Most retail outlets at major international airports now comply with the new regulations. However, if items purchased at other airports do not fulfil the new requirements, these may be confiscated at Abu Dhabi International Airport before departure.
