Features transport drugs by plane

The passenger has the right to take solid or liquid medicines in the required amount. That is, if you plan a vacation for 10 days, and a person takes two tablets of a certain medication per day, then he can take only 20 tablets with him. For transportation by air of more than 5 identical packages of drugs, it is necessary to declare. In this case, the passenger passes the control not along the green, but along the red corridor. Such a party is considered a commercial, respectively, requires payment of duty.

Preparations that have sleeping pills, narcotic, psychotropic or analgesic components can only be transported with the provision of a prescription, personal signature of the attending physician and a stamp of the health authority. An extract from a personal medical history, which is certified by a medical institution, can serve as confirmation of the need to take the medicine. The statement or prescription must clearly indicate the amount of the drug being transported, which is controlled by the airport staff. When flying outside the Russian Federation, the certificate must be translated into English and certified by a notary.

All, without exception, medicines that are transported must be in their original packaging with original labeling. If there is no box, attention is drawn to the integrity of the plates themselves with capsules or tablets. All drugs that have expired are prohibited from being transported by air.

Features of transportation of drugs by air transport for the Russian border

Preparing for the flight, the passenger, who plans to take medicines with him, should familiarize himself with the customs regulations of the country where he is flying. Almost all countries in the world prohibit the import of drugs that have psychotropic or narcotic components. This list may significantly differ from Russian. For example, it can be noted that in most countries import of "Valocordin" and "Corvalol" is prohibited, since the active substance of these drugs is phenobarbital. This substance belongs to the category of narcotic substances. In particular, these products are prohibited from importing into the United States, Lithuania, Estonia and the United Arab Emirates.

It should be emphasized that the standard tourist first aid kit with a set of antipyretic, adsorptive and eye drops is carried by air transport without any permits. The main thing is that the number of packages of each type of medicines does not exceed 1-2 packages. With such medicines, you can safely walk along the green corridor. Receptor preparations must be supported by appropriate documents, and the passenger passes the check through the red corridor. The same verification procedure is also necessary when carrying more than 5 packages of the same drug on board the aircraft.

To avoid any problems with the transportation of medicines by air, you should take only what you need. It is also worth clarifying the customs rules of the country to which the flight is carried out. If necessary, take a prescription or an extract from the treatment history from your doctor. 

I wonder how it is possible to take the prescription together with the medicine, if, when buying the drug, the prescription for it is picked up by the pharmacy in accordance with the law? Further: the psychotropic drug was bought under the prescription in Moscow, how do I now deliver it to a deadly person in a remote outback in Russia, given that in the outpatient clinic with the history of the disease there is no data of mine, and a map of the sick person where she is all the norms of the Russian Federation and the place in the registry of the polyclinic at the place of residence of the patient? According to all norms, rules and laws of our state, so that I do not get into prison and do not throw out the bought-out drug with such difficulty and with such expenses, now someone close does not understand how to bring a fatally ill person to Moscow with his medical history , something the medicine is not even platinum, but the diamond turns out ?!
p.s Inet-pharmacies are either not being taken there, or they do not deal with this group of prescription drugs because of problems with licensing, in any case, they told us so. Here I just can not understand what will happen to the plane or passengers because of the medicines, packed yet at the pharmaceutical factory in 2 pack.for 30 capsules ??? :(

To do this, you need to take a receipt for the purchase of such a medicine with you. Having a check confirms that you bought it legally, which means it was prescription.
