BUHAY OFW NGAYON ATBP. Ni Therry Alpa Yan ang madalas na katanungan ng mga anak ng Ofws.

How to Avoid Luggage Tampering

  All air travelers go through the tight security procedures in airports. They also need to submit their luggage or suitcases for inspection to prove that they are not carrying any prohibited and illegal items. Prohibited items such as water bottles or gels will either be confiscated or the bearer will be asked to discard it himself. Being caught with an illegal item (such as drugs and weapons) is another matter as it has serious consequences such as questioning, detention, being blacklisted and being denied to travel. Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) should particularly be conscious of the items that are not allowed as they would often fill their luggage with so much stuff since their work contracts require lengthy stay. Be aware that your luggage will be out of your sight once it is checked in and it can be tampered. Luggage tampering make innocent people suffer and surprisingly it is very easy to do.
