Being mindful of what you pack when you are travelling is essential, as there are many items that are restricted.
Qatar Airways places restrictions on some items that can pose a risk of explosion, causing bodily harm, or damaging other property.
The ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team brings you a list of items prohibited in hand-carry or checked-in bags that you should be aware of.
Dangerous Goods are classified as items or substances that could pose health or safety hazards to customers.
International civil aviation regulations regulate the transport of these goods, and they are generally not allowed in either cabin baggage or checked baggage, with some exceptions.
Guns, firearms and other devices that discharge projectiles designed to cause serious injury by discharging projectiles or that could be mistaken for such devices, including toys, antiques and replicas; however, they can be carried in checked baggage (firearms will require permission).
Examples of items are given below:
Aside from the above restrictions on items, you can carry within your checked or hand baggage, please note the below:
Whether a lithium battery can be carried by air or not depends on its configuration and either watt-hour (Wh) rating (for rechargeable) or lithium content (LC) (for non-rechargeable). Passengers can carry up to 15 portable electronic devices containing lithium-ion batteries. The battery watt-hour rating should not exceed 100 (or 2g, for lithium metal).
Per Qatar Airways' guidelines, batteries in equipment such as laptop computers, cameras or mobile phones must be switched off, and measures should be taken to ensure that they cannot be accidentally activated when placed in checked baggage.
