Insulin and syringes coming in to the airport


Recommended Posts

This from the American Diabetes Association website:

Am I allowed to bring my diabetes supplies with me on the plane? 

Yes. TSA specifically states that diabetes-related supplies, equipment and medications, including liquids, are allowed through the checkpoint once they have been properly screened by X-ray or hand inspection. Passengers should declare these items and separate them from other belongings before screening begins. -

"Bringing medicaments into Mexico for personal use only

Passengers traveling with medicines for personal use are allowed to enter the country (regardless of the active component) as long as they bring their prescription or a letter from their GP in which it must state the amount of the substance required by the patient during her or his stay in Mexico, the amount bringing into the country and the daily dose.

At the port of entry you must declare to the customs authorities and present the medical prescription or license issued by competent authority. The former must state name of the doctor authorising the prescription, his signature, contact details (telephone, address) and professional register. The medical prescription or licence must also state amount of the substance required by the patient during her or his stay in Mexico, the amount bringing into the country and the daily dose. The medicaments must not exceed of the amount required for your stay in the country. The prescription must be translated into Spanish.

Please also be aware that in order for you to export medicaments for personal use from the United Kingdom, you might need a personal export license."
