Travelling with a laptop

Do I need to take my laptop out of its bag?

You may have to take your laptop out of its bag and place it in the tray provided at the airport screening point. Removing your laptop from its bag will ensure screening officers have an unobstructed view as it moves through the screening equipment.


  • Laptops are easier to get out of the bag and into the screening point tray if they are not covered by papers, mobile phones and other objects.
  • Neatly-packed bags are less likely to need to be re-screened.
