is advisable to take some precautions, especially if traveling internationally,
it will be difficult and more complicated to solve the problems being
away from home. With some basic tips, you could have one more trip tranquila.Veja
below some important points: Check-list
Perhaps the vast majority of people do not make a checgem of items to
be taken during the trip. With it, you hardly forget something important
or essential, as a device for example. Besides a simple procedure will
bring the assurance that something not fall into oblivion.
Forget the documents is a serious thing and can bring you great inconvenience.
Forget diving certificate for example, may cause you to let you dive in
most places. In others, perhaps with the goodwill of the operator in wanting
to make a confirmation by the certification or if you are not certified,
it can happen, but either way, you end up losing tempo.Passaporte and
since then, neither speaks. A friend of mine has left the board to be
with the expired passport, and despite it being with the valid visa, no
conversation. It was necessary to get a new passport, pay a fee for issuing
an emergency passport and await delivery on seguite. It's hard to believe
that this occurs, but for those who travel a lot, is not hard to forget
Without a doubt, is the best cost benefit that you can have in terms of
attendance in case of emergency. With this insurance, you may receive
medical care in several countries. Luggage Here are some important points:
Prohibited items - There are currently prohibited
from being carried in hand luggage the following items:
- Alarm Devices
- Bottles over 100ml
(Shampoo, conditioner, among others.)
- Toothpaste, ointments,
creams and the like.
there is a need to take something that is liquid or paste form, and with
less than 100ml in hand, it is necessary to pack the product in a plastic
bag and has not size up to 20x20cm. Items over 100ml purchased at duty-free
and can be carried in hand luggage.
- Avoid placing adhesive dip in his luggage. At airports such as Miami,
the Chargers are well aware the bags divers because of the weight and
usually dive flag on display, and soon they will know that the luggage
contains expensive equipment. Unfortunately there are thieves in airports
that are attracted to this detail.
There are some reports of tourists who were forced to connect the notebook
to a tax inspection of American immigration. In 2008, the United States
authorized the police to be able to connect the equipment to the verification
of personal data contained in notebooks and the verification of pirated
software. So if you're one of those people with illegal software, be careful!
You may end up being arrested for using pirate software. It is best not
take your notebook to prevent mishaps.
of the luggage - I for one, always put a piece of duct tape with my
name, phone number, address, flight number, as this will increase the
chances of retrieving of baggage, if it come to be misplaced. Furthermore,
especially in the United States, if they suspect something inside your
luggage will be easier to know who owns it and will call you to open and
show what is inside, as was the case a friend of mine who was called by
the speaker of an airport in Japan, to appear in a room of airport security,
and open the baggage agents to carry out a survey. In his case, there
was a suspected bomb, given the shape of a waterproof case for SLR camera.
On occasion, he only realized he was being called the third time, and
his luggage was ready to be arrombada.Usando an identification with their
data, facilitate contact with the authorities you, if needed.
Plastic Bag - Who has not seen those airport employees placing a plastic
around the baggage? For those who do not know the product is known as
Protect Bag, a trademark patented and that is nothing more than a plastic
wrapped and Ridiger on luggage in order to prevent the opening thereof.
Like everything at the airport, it's a product through expensive for what
it is, but depending on what you are bringing in their luggage, it is
advisable to place the same. Deped of fate, it is advisable to carry a
roll of Silver Tape, for not having the Protect Bag, you can pass the
Silver Tape in the bag. This process does not guarantee that the bag is
not opened, however, the occasion makes the thief, and if a person contemplate
opening a baggage, it certainly will in the luggage easier to open.
you are those who do not believe that protection and find that
only one lock is enough, click here (4.7MB) and watch a demonstration of opening
the luggage in seconds using just a pen. I suppose you will change
baggage - This is one of the most undesirable things that can happen
on a journey. If this occurs, get near the place where you remove the
luggage, the person responsible for the registration of lost luggage.
Never leave the arrivals hall to demand from this sector on the outside
and near the check-in at airports. In some places, you can not return
the area inside the airport and will certainly problemas.Se responsible
for the sector say that your luggage will come on the next flight and
that is not required to register, and insist on the latter case, force
the responsible do the same. this is mandatory and will be the official
document that will prove the ocorrido.Jamais leave the baggage ticket
with others. This also is a bill and nobody needs to get on this ticket.
Just be aware of the numbers of baggage and nothing else.
- AAfter the attacks of September 11, the TSA
(Transportation Security Administration), an American national security
has requested the use of locks approved by it. The main difference of
them is that if an airport security officer suspicious of your luggage,
it will search the model number used to lock bag and he will open the
same with a master key to the survey, without having to break his luggage,
which happened much earlier, mainly because Americans do not bother to
draw travelers to open bagagem.Se possible, get those locks in the United
States as well come out more expensive than in Brazil, somewhere around
8 to $ 12. Currently have met with relative ease, these standard TSA locks,
but be attentive to quality.
objects - Because of terrorism, airport security has greatly increased,
so you should not forget that you can not take in hand luggage, sharp
objects like scissors, pocket knife, diving knife or sharp objects. Despite
warnings, many people still forget that detail. Business travelers and
go through the inspection of boarding, it is common to see a plastic box
full of objects that were left behind by travelers.
Should always be carried in bags and not in hand luggage. Batteries
on hand, would allow the ignition of a bomb for example, and with the
terrorist attacks, airport officials did not allow the transportation
of them on hand. If you have an HID flashlight, leave the canister in
one of your bags with the batteries and take in hand luggage only the
HEAD (head) of HID, just because it's the most expensive and vulnerable
to impact. In the U.S., airport officials do not allow the traveler to
board ship without the batteries in the pack, and if you try to push it,
could be preso.A from January 2008, TSA has created more than one rule
about the transport of batteries flights passing through the United States.
One of them is to put a tape on the contacts of the batteries that are
the belongings which are disconnected from equipment. The purpose of this
is to prevent this cell or battery is a facilitator for fires and explosões.Veja
the table below, information on the carrying of batteries in luggage:

Allowed - 1 Unit
Recommended - 1 unit
No one installed in equipment and with 2 or more grams of Lithium.

Benjamim / Adapters Plugs
When traveling overseas, check before making the type used in the
destination country. Several countries like the United States itself,
making use of different fittings of the models commonly used in Brazil,
and you need to reload a flashlight or a camera for example, may have
problems with these differences plugs.Atualmente you can find an adapter
that is universal . Although half affection, something around $ 45, you
fit the plug into the adapter and this wall, through dievrsas opportunities
equipment and sensitive to pressure variation
If possible, bring in your hand luggage, regulators, dive computer
and dry clothes, if you have one. If any employee of the airline or airport
staff complain of regulators and / or hand luggage, the same report that
the equipment is to dive and are sensitive to pressure variations. If
there is no way, ask for a document that someone blame the airport. Logically,
no one will blame you and always flush with the equipment in the baggage
mãos.Em 2006 had a problem the United States with a atentende head
of an American company that would not allow regulators to bring in hand
and believe me, because I could handle the hose and hit with the 1st Stage
in someone's head during the flight. However, showed the same as contained
in the rules of his own company in question, which was allowed to take
the governor at hand. Foot and knocked on the subject had to release the
transport at hand. It is advisable to access the website of the airline
which you want to travel, and print the page that tells what is and what
is not allowed to carry in hand luggage and checked.
This federal agency is responsible for monitoring the entry and exit
of objects and products in Brazil. On international trips, it is mandatory
for any person filing a declaration which included the imported products
with their respective serial numbers, you're taking trip since returning
to Brazil, if stopped by the customs officials (customs) will be the only
proof that you had come out of Brazil with this equipment, and there is
no connection with their purchase and quota limit. The big problem is
that many divers have complained about the treatment of tax, where some
report that is not required to fill out the diving equipment, which is
completely disagrees with the Brazilian legislation. Our law requires
everyone to fill out the imported goods when traveling abroad, making
no distinction. Imported equipment is imported equipment, so you have
the obligation to have a statement completed and recognized by the IRS.
And for you, have an obligation to provide you with the same stamped and
registered in system. This is provided by law. Remember that the statement
is a guarantee of a return without pain cabeça.Mais information
about the DBA (Accompanied Baggage Declaration) can be obtained from the
IRS Web site in the area of Customs - Baggage.
Be careful with the excess weight of baggage. Paying extra for air
travel market share is always caro.Atualmente legislation allows travel
with luggage up to 20kg for domestic travel, ie the interior of Brazil
and two baggage up to 32 kg each for international travel over long distances.
Hand luggage must have a limit of 5 kg Anyway, check the limit with the
airline, as some companies are weighing with differentiated in certain
cases. Flights to South America, usually revolve around 20 to 23Kg limit
total.Em hardware store, usually found a very simple and inexpensive equipment,
which allows the measurement of weight. If you are carrying a lot, sometimes
it is valid to take a look at the weight of the bag before going to the
airport, and divide the weight between elas.Uma good tip for those who
are always pushing the limits allowed weight is always arrive too early
at the airport, and an early check-in. For each flight, operators can
learn via the terminal, the information of the aircraft, as the amount
of kilos already loaded and still available for luggage in the aircraft.
The check-in done, that limit is decreasing gradativmente. The latest
to make the check-in will be under the possibility of being penalized
for excess baggage, because operators are more cautious with the extra
weight of luggage, so that the safety limit of the aircraft is not exceeded.
Who ever takes housings for cameras or camcorders, or even flashlights
diving, they should not charge them with their lids closed. Put the lid
back on, but not completely close, leaving there a passage of air into
the compartment of the equipment in si.Ao sea level, we are a pressure
of 1 atmosphere (1 ATM) and the pressure cabin of a plane when pressurized,
is around 0.7 / 0.8 ATM. Thus, the cabin pressure is lower than the pressure
at sea level. When a casing is closed and is the same in an environment
with an ATM, there will be an expansion of air inside the compartment,
with a force acting from the inside out. The enclosures are made to sustain
pressures from outside. This small variation may be negligible, but already
there were cases of people with problems in equipment or have some o-ring's
damaged. Some carried cameras in housings closed durata flight, and the
boxes had alagamento.Caixas like Pelican, are free from this problem because
they have a control valve pressure variation, which regulates the internal
pressure with the outside.
During long flights, drier air we breathe and is renewed for purifying
filters and humidifiers present on the plane. Dehydration of the body
is imminent, and fluid intake before and during the flight, not only contribute
to the hydration of our bodies, such as help in the dissolution of residual
nitrogen, if returning from a day of diving. For those who are returning
from a week with lots of diving and coming from places like Bonaire for
example, should drink more fluids before flights. Despite the computers
to release the diver to fly after a few hours, there have been some reported
cases of decompression sickness.
abroad, search the Internet and write down phone numbers and addresses
important issues such as medical centers, restaurants and other references
that can help you during the trip.
have a pen handy. Before landing, either in Brazil or abroad, you
will need to fill a short statement on immigration and baggage, and
not always find a pen available. And a hint: make the fill and hide
the pen, because inevitably other people will ask around and you end
up losing the stylus for forgetting to take it again.
has a tool called Google Earth and Google Street. They are very helpful
in choosing hotels and how is the neighborhood of where they want
to stay. In the expensive Earth, you can still get the marks of GPS
location for a possible plot on a GPS. This can help in time to return
to the hotel for example, if spot nobody speaks a language like English.
At least, you have the direction of where the hotel and is moving
away or coming closer.
