New rules end confiscation of duty-free liquids bought at Singapore airport from transfer passengers
The European Commission adopted on August 20 2008 a regulation (EU) No 820/2008 allowing air passengers arriving from Croatia (Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Pula, Split, Zadar and Zagreb airports) and transferring at an EU airport to take duty-free liquids on-board their connecting flights. When changing planes in the EU, these passengers will no longer be obliged to abandon liquids bought at Croatian airports and carried in their cabin baggage.
This means that liquids, aerosols and gels purchased in duty free shops at Croatian airports that are carried by transfer passengers at EU airports need no longer to be confiscated from that date onwards, provided that
1) they are carried in a Security Tamper Evident Bag (STEB),
2) they are purchased within the preceding 36 hours and
3) the tamper evident bag displays satisfactory proof of purchase at one of these airports:
Dubrovnik (DBV) airport
Rijeka (RJK) airport
Pula (PUY) airport
Split (SPU) airport
Zadar (ZAD) airport
Zagreb (ZAG) airport
This Regulation will enter into force on August 20 2008.
