Travel Medicine Branch deals with the prevention and management of health problems of travellers. We advise that all travelers with chronic medical conditions should carry all their necessary medicines for the entire duration of their journey.
Carry your medicines in carry-on-luggage in their original containers. Duplicate medical supplies can be put in the checked luggage, this is a precaution against theft and loss.
Needles, sharps and liquids more than 100ml unfortunately, have to remain in checked luggage, this is due to heightened airline security after the 9/11.
Carry the name and contact details of your doctor, information about medical condition and treatment, it will assist where you cannot.
