Our answer to your question

Your question :

Can I take prescription medications with me ?


Our response :

When travelling abroad with prescription or over-the-counter medication:

  • Pack all medications in their original, labeled containers to avoid problems with customs officials.
     
  • Do not try to save luggage space by combining medications into a single container.
     
  • Pack an extra supply of medication in case you are away for longer than expected.
     
  • Carry a copy of the original prescription and ensure that both the generic and trade names of the medication are included in case of loss or theft. A doctor's note describing why you are taking the medication is also recommended.
     
  • If you are carrying any unusual medication, check that it is legal and readily available in the country you intend to visit.
