Useful information for traveling outside the country and requirements for the Parts Plus 2017 Customer Exposition.
For all international travel, a passport is required. If you have a passport, double-check the date to be sure that it won't expire before or during your trip, as well as for 6 months afterward. When in doubt, call your airline to check with them, as they have the most stringent regulations. If you don't have a passport, apply for one sooner rather than later, just in case of delay. The hotel will make a photocopy of your passport upon arrival. For more information on what you need to get a passport or to get one renewed, visit Travel.State.gov.
For countries that don’t need a visa, a Mexico Visitor’s Permit (FMM) will need to be filled out in place of a visa. This is a simple form: pick one up from the check-in counter at the airport and fill it out on the airplane before you land or you can acquire one at all land border crossings. If the airline you are traveling with does not have any forms at the check-in desk or on-board the plane, don’t worry, you can get one when you land in Mexico and fill it out before you line up to have your documents checked and stamped by the officials at the airport. The hotel will make a photocopy of this document upon arrival.
You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes through the checkpoint. These are limited to 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. This is also known as the 3-1-1 liquids rule.
TSA officers have tools for opening and re-locking baggage with accepted and recognized locks, such as Safe Skies® and Travel Sentry®, reducing the likelihood of damaging the lock or bag if a physical inspection is required. TSA is not liable for damage caused to locked bags that must be opened for security purposes.
Remember to check your baggage for prohibited items. Use the Can I Bring My…? tool to check if items like sporting goods, foods, tools and others are permitted. Some carry-on items may be prohibited even if they appear not to be, like a cane with a hidden sword.
For more information, check out the TSA Website.
Check out the carry-on baggage tips on the FAA site.
"The FAA has limited passengers flying within the United States to one piece of carry-on luggage and one personal item. Personal items may include: handbags, briefcases, laptops, daypacks and small backpacks. In addition to one carry-on and one personal item, passengers may bring on board a coat, reading material, small bag of food and devices such as wheelchairs and walkers.
You should check with your airline first, but most domestic airlines permit a carry-on piece of luggage that is 45 linear (total) inches. A common sized bag for carry-on luggage is 22"x 14"x 9". Most airlines have a carry-on weight limit of 40 pounds.
International airlines may have different restrictions for carry-on luggage. Again, it is always best to check with your airline first to get their exact requirements.
Airlines enforce all size and weight limits much more strictly now than in the past. Bags are weighed at check-in and many airlines have placed bag sizers at their gates. If your carry-on bags are too big, you will have to check them. This might cause them to be classified as "extra bags" which usually carries an extra charge.
The chart below contains examples of both domestic and international airlines with their carry-on size and weight restrictions and is intended only as a reference point. Be sure to check your airlines website prior to travel.
Measurements include handles and wheels.
To calculate linear dimensions add the length, width, and height together."
