Before you go

We recommend that you check the Foreign and Commonwealth office website to help stay safe overseas and to make informed decisions about travelling abroad. You should only travel if you are fit to travel and able to participate in all part of the services that you have booked to undertake.

You will need to comply with the health requirements of your destination, as well as prove that you have any necessary vaccinations for your travel arrangements. Consult your doctor about any health requirements for your destination beforehand and visit IATA Travel Centre to find out what vaccinations you’ll need.

Should you need to take any medication with you, check before travel that you are allowed to take it into the country you are visiting. Some countries do not permit certain medicines even though they may be widely accepted in your own country. Take any paperwork or authorisation from your doctor that may be required.

Millions of people travel the world each year and enjoy trouble free trips but crimes against people and property are a fact of life. It makes sense to take the same responsibility for your own safety abroad as you would do at home.

Here are some tips you may find useful:

Use credit cards where possible to avoid carrying excessive amounts of cash or travellers cheques.
Use the hotel’s safety deposit box if there is one.
Lock your door even when you’re inside your room, but when you leave make sure you close and lock your windows, doors and balconies.
Don’t walk around poorly lit areas and beaches after dark and don’t feel embarrassed about crossing the road if you feel uneasy about someone in the street.
Try to use only registered or official taxis, so ask the hotel for guidance.
Drink responsibly.

Port Elizabeth International: Luggage Guidelines

Luggage Guidelines of Port Elizabeth International

General

  • Keep your hand luggage with you at all times.
  • Ensure that all zips and fasteners are in good working condition – baggage can move about in the overhead compartment and unsecured items may fall out.
  • Don’t wrap gifts – it is possible that the security teams may wish to view them properly, and will unwrap them.
  • Keep electronic items to a minimum.
  • A change of clothes, or at least underwear and a spare shirt may also be appreciated, either at the end of a long-haul flight, or if hold baggage is delayed.
  • Don’t carry anything on to an aircraft for anyone else. If you are asked to do so, please contact Airport Security.
  • Remove old tags and barcodes from your hand luggage.

Medicines

If taking medicines with you, try to keep in the original packaging. This will assist security to identify the medicines and will prevent delays.

Camera Film

The x-rays used to screen hold baggage should not affect most camera film. Film material over 1000ASA/31 DIN should be removed and offered for screening separately.

Valuables

Keep your valuables such as jewellery and important documents safely stored in your hand baggage. It is a good idea to keep some money (local currency) on your person. Then, should you be separated from your bag, you will still be able to make payphone calls, pay for transport or purchase small items.

Laptops

Laptops should be removed from their bags for screening prior to boarding the aircraft.

Many laptop bags look similar which can cause confusion when leaving the aircraft. Put a key ring, sticker or other identifying mark on your bag so that you can be sure that you are leaving with the correct computer.

Prohibited and Permitted Items

Airports Company South Africa will enforce new rules that restrict the amount of items that passengers may take on board. Please refer to our Prohibited and Permitted Items guidelines.
