Hi everyone, our visas for Portugal should be (fingers crossed) here in a few weeks and we are working on what will go into our luggage when we fly over. Question...do you know if there will be any issue with bringing some spices and dry mixes from home that we love, mostly from Trader Joe's. The dry spices / spice mixes are all packaged in their original containers and are from 1 oz to 20 oz. Do you think there would be any issue with packing them in our checked luggage? Thank you so much!!
Solid food items (not liquids or gels) can be transported in either your carry-on or checked bags. Liquid or gel food items larger than 3.4 oz are not allowed in carry-on bags and should be placed in your checked bags if possible.
TSA officers may instruct travelers to separate items from carry-on bags such as foods, powders, and any materials that can clutter bags and obstruct clear images on the X-ray machine. Travelers are encouraged to organize their carry-on bags and keep them uncluttered to ease the screening process and keep the lines moving.
