Can I bring this into Mexico?

Recommended Posts

I just started an intensive regimen of 6 Chinese herbal compounds to fight allergy/sinus infection problems. Does anyone know if it would be a problem bringing them into Mexico? They are made here in Garland, TX and consist mostly of flowers and plants like dandelion, etc...

Hmm, I don't know. Are you concerned about bringing it on board with you? Could you not just call the airport/airline and have them check with you? I think that's the best way - get the confirmation straight from them.

I agree with all of that! ;-)

 

Call the airlines for sure...it never hurts to ask them and see what the regulations are. And definitely keep them in whatever original/official looking package you have. I imagine a bunch of herbs in a ziploc wouldn't go over terribly well in an airport! Lol!!

I'm personally a big fan of the don't ask, don't tell policy. Seriously, airline screeners are not looking for pot or herbs, their looking for weapons and explosives. Are these herbs in pill form or just loose? If their pills, I would just put them in an rx bottle & carry in my carry on just like I would any other meds I'm taking. It's for personal use, and it's not illegal, so I wouldn't even worry. (can you tell I've transported lots of stuff I shouldn't have?? lol)

As long as you keep them in your checked luggage you should be okay. I wouldnt try bringing it in your carry on luggage though.

Hmm, ok. The only thing is they're supposed to be stored in a cool, dry place which I'm not sure will happen if they're underneath the plane...

I have to travel with herbs - some that are liquid and some that are capsules that have to be kept cold which means I have to travel with ice packs and a cooler bag that I take on the plane with me.

 

I travel all over the US on a bi-weekly basis and have been back and forth to Cabo 4 times in the last year. I have never had a problem and frequently I take the tablets out and stick them in a ziplock so they're not in any kind of identifiable packaging.

 

If you're really concerned, you could have your practitioner write a statement about them on letterhead. I wouldn't check them - if your luggage gets lost you will miss doses.

Natasha, you are an endless source of knowledge!

It sounds to me that if you have your stuff in it's original packaging and you had a letter you should be fine. To be honest I would be more concerned with your return flight from Mexico into the USA...

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
