Liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) restrictions for passengers transiting on international flights

To protect against the threat of liquid explosives, there are rules for taking liquids, aerosols and gels on flights in and out of Australia. 

Passengers transiting on arrival in Australia will be re-screened at Sydney Airport before re-boarding the aircraft and departing for their final destination.

Any liquids, aerosols and gels carried by transit passengers that do not meet the quantity restrictions or pass screening will not be allowed through the screening point.  This includes duty free items. The Australian Government’s TravelSecure website provides further information about inbound transit requirements.
