​​​To help you prepare for your journey and clear security checks at airports quickly and easily, we provide you with a range of advice and tips. 

People and bags entering the secure area of an Australian airport are screened to reduce the risk of a security incident occurring. Security checks may sometimes seem inconvenient, but they are in place to protect us and to keep us secure and safe.

We encourage you to gain an understanding of the screening processes at an airport. This will help make your passage through security screening as fast and efficient as possible.​
