So, I haven’t actually flown into the US since about 1998, and I know that things have changed somewhat.
I need info and suggestions to make getting through security as fast and painless as possible.
So - some specific questions:
- Perscription medication in original packaging, right? I take synthroid which I can’t imagine is going to be a problem, a topical cream for my face, and Tylenol #3’s - if the tylenol is in its original Rx bottle, will it be an issue?
What about vitamins, iron, calcium etc - can I just chuck all that stuff in a baggie, or does it have to be in original packaging as well?
I’m not planning on checking any luggage - am I going to be able to bring my tweezers? They’re just standard tweezers, but they are metal and sort of pointy, so I’ll just leave them at home if that’s an issue.
I have my new and updated passport, my drivers licence and my birth certificate - I shouldn’t need any other ID, right? Also, I’m bringing travelers cheques - am I going to have to prove that I have enough $$ for the duration of my trip or anything?
Cell phone - I can bring it, right?
I’m dropping my dog off at the kennel at 9:00am and my flight is at 11:10 so I’ll probably only have about 1.75 - 2 hours to check in and make it through security - I don’t think I look particularly threatening, but is there anything I can do to expidite things? Things not to wear/say/do, that kind of thing?
Any thing else?
Anything else anyone can think of?
