From 30 June 2018, people travelling internationally will notice some changes to how they are screened in Australia. Passengers will be required to present all powders in their carry-on baggage separately for screening.
There will be quantity restrictions on some types of powders but most common powders remain unrestricted. Check the powder, liquid, aerosol and gel restrictions before you travel.
The Office of Transport Security has been transferred to the Department of Home Affairs.
Transport Security information will remain available here until the information has been migrated to the Home Affairs website.
