Hello there everyone,
So after a long wait, finally it's time to travel and visit a new country. In the mean time, it has been not so long since I got my hands on my first Class IV laser. I know someone who had a not very good experience with bringing lasers from abroad.
So I really wonder if there's any way to safely migrate a laser from one country to another without driving any suspicions.
Please advise if this matter has been discussed before by referring to the thread.
Thanks in advance

I’ve traveled with lasers many times, although they were <5mW lol 😀

I wouldn’t worry about it. If possible not traveling with batteries wouldn’t hurt. If anyone asks what it is just say a flashlight (which is kinda is when unfocused, lol.

Safe travels :)

Seriously, just don’t do anything stupid with it and you most likely will go through a problem.

Food for thought; turn the lens around backwards, it prevents it from focusing and it does turn it into an awesome colored flashlight...

Be safe, BobMc :)
