Step 2 - Security Control

At Julius Nyerere International Airport Passenger screening is done to ensure traveler safety and security as they leave the airport. It is conducted at different screening points starting with the entrance area into the departure terminal and ending with one last screening point before passengers go through the boarding gates.

Your carry-on bags may be screened in a number of ways, including:

  1. X-ray examination
  2. Testing for chemical residues using Explosive Trace Detection (ETD) equipment;
  3. Physical search.

There are a number of steps that you can take to make the screening process quicker and easier. For example, if carrying a laptop or any other equipment such as a camera take it out of its case and put it in the trays provided at the screening point. If you have a non-standard camera or film, please discuss how these can be examined with the officers at the security screening point.

Make sure you have placed all your liquid, aerosol and gel products in reseal-able plastic bags ready for inspection. This includes any medicines or medical products in liquid, aerosol or gel form.

You should also let the security screening officer know if you have any medically necessary syringes in your carry-on baggage.

Please remember that certain items are not permitted onboard. You will need to surrender these before you pass through the security screening point. Check with your airline before to find out what you cannot take onboard and either leave it at home or pack it in your checked baggage, if permitted.
