The entry of medicines into other countries may be subject to sanitary inspection. So don't forget your doctor's prescription. Remember to take (preferably in your carry-on) the medicines you need for the entire duration of the trip. It is recommended that medicines be kept in their original box. Pay attention to the individual volume of the containers because, according to air safety regulations, it is only allowed to carry in carry-on:

 • Essential medicines accompanied by a medical prescription (the prescription must have the passenger's name matched with the boarding pass's name).

 • Medicines that do not require a medical prescription: eye drops, saline solution for contact lenses, etc. (provided they do not exceed 100ml or 3.4oz).

 • Solid cosmetics (lipstick, lip balm, or deodorant stick, among others).
