g) Temporary Admission (T.E.A.T.)

After the first landing in the Brazilian territory (which must be at an international
airport), the AVANAC must be validated by Customs through the issuance and
registration in the ANAC and Federal Police systems. The Term of Entry and Temporary
Admission (TEAT) or an equivalent document will be released by the Brazilian
authorities. Without the TEAT, no foreign aircraft will have its flight plan accepted to any

will provide the cancelling of the AVANAC of that aircraft.

Permitted and Prohibited Items


Prohibited items are weapons, explosives, incendiaries and include items that are seemingly harmless but
may be used as weaponsthe so-called dual use items. You may not bring these items to security
checkpoints without authorization.
If you bring a prohibited item to the checkpoint, you may be criminally and/or civilly prosecuted or, at the
least, be asked to rid yourself of the item. A screener and/or Law Enforcement Officer will make this
determination, depending on what the item is and the circumstances. This is because bringing a
prohibited item to a security checkpointeven accidentallyis illegal.
Your prohibited item may be detained for use in an investigation and, if necessary, as evidence in your
criminal and/or civil prosecution. If permitted by the screener or Law Enforcement Officer, you may be
allowed to: consult with the airlines for possible assistance in placing the prohibited item in checked
baggage; withdraw with the item from the screening checkpoint at that time; make other arrangements
for the item, such as taking it to your car; or, voluntarily abandoning the item. Items that are voluntarily
abandoned cannot be recovered and will not be returned to you.
The following chart outlines items that are permitted and items that are prohibited in your carry-on or
checked baggage. You should note that some items are allowed in your checked baggage, but not your
carry-on. Also pay careful attention to the Notes included at the bottom of each section they contain
important information on restrictions.
The prohibited and permitted items chart is not intended to be all-inclusive and is updated as necessary.
To ensure everyones security, the screener may determine that an item not on the prohibited items chart
is prohibited. In addition, the screener may also determine that an item on the permitted chart is
dangerous and therefore may not be brought through the security checkpoint.
THE CHART BELLOW APPLIES TO ALL FLIGHTS.
