Medicine in the luggage

We always recommend that you bring vital drugs in your carry-on luggage.

Travelling with medicines in the form of pills, will in general not be a problem in terms of our security.

However, if it is liquid medicine, we recommend that you contact your doctor and get a travel letter in English describing the medication.

Pill passport

If you bring medicines containing narcotics or drugs that affect the central nervous system and are travelling to one of the Schengen countries, you must also be in possession of a pill passport. The purpose of this passport is to document that the medicine is for personal use as part of a medical treatment.

A pill passport can be issued by a pharmacy, which can also provide guidance on the types of medications that require pill passport.

If you want a pill passport, you will need a prescription from your doctor - even if it comes to drugs that usually do not require a prescription.

The validity of a pill passport exceeds after 30 days. If your journey is longer than 30 days, contact the nearest embassy in the destinated country, and find out how to proceed from there.

Further questions about medicine on the trip

If you have further questions about medication for the journey, visit the pharmacy in Terminal 2 before security. Here you can also get your prescription medicine. Find the Airport Pharmacy.
