Special regulations for carrying liquids, aerosols and gels purchased after security screening at an EU airport.
Liquids, aerosols and gels purchased at an airport after security screening must be put in a sealed bag (STEB) by the personnel at a duty free store or on board with visible proof of purchase or ID of the place of purchase. A sealed package is valid for 3h. It means that passengers who plan to have connecting flights within the EU will be able to carry liquids, aerosols and gels in special bag STEB without the need to subject them to securing screening again at the stopover airport. If the package (STEB) becomes invalid, or if the package is tampered with during the period of 3 hours after placing liquids, aerosols, or gels inside it, the liquids carried will again have to be subject to security screening.
Travelling from a non-EU airport with a stopover at an EU airport – carrying liquids purchased earlier.
If you are travelling from a non-EU airport and you are planning to purchase liquids at a duty-free store (after security screening), you need to make sure that they are properly packed in a security tamper-evident bag (STEB) with visible proof of purchase or ID of the place of purchase. For the list of airports where you can board a plane carrying liquids, aerosols and gels which may be exempt from security screening during the transfer at an European airport, provided that they are packed appropriately, see the website of the Civil Aviation Authority at http://www.ulc.gov.pl/en/.
