Security at Phuket International Airport
Note: International liquids, aerosols and gels (LAG) rule applies to this airport.
You and your bags must pass through a scanner to get into the airport building. This is a cursory screening. There is no need to remove laptops or your "LAG bag" from carry-ons, and you can keep your belt and shoes on.
There is a second screening to go through to gain access to the departure lounges. You must remove your laptop and LAG bag from your carry-on, but you can usually keep your belt and shoes on.
