Australia international travel news



All handicapped passengers who have mobility problems, are visually impaired, or suffer from a series of medical pathologies, have the right to be able to travel like everyone else. They are entitled to free assistance during boarding and disembarkation, during the flight and inside the airport of departure or arrival.

There are no restrictions for the use and boarding of medical devices and aids on domestic and international flights to and from Australia provided that the passenger shows all the necessary documentation.

Medical devices and aids with full medical documentation are exempt from the restrictions on powders, liquids, aerosols and gels applicable to international travel.  You can find more information on the subject by consulting the articles Liquids in hand luggage or Medicines to take with you on your travels in our blog.

Hypodermic needles for medical use are exempt from restrictions on prohibited articles. It is necessary to present the needles and supporting medical documentation to security officers at checkpoints and in cabin baggage when boarding the aircraft.
