The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has made some major changes for passengers returning to the United States from some international cities. Passengers may now be required to power up electronic devices during the security screening process. If the device does not turn on, it will not be allowed on board. This could potentially cause undue stress for travelers returning home (e.g. an electronic device is not charged and won’t turn on) and having personal electronics deemed ineligible to return with their owners is certainly not the way to end a trip.
Please review the TSA website and get all the facts before traveling abroad.
