Ostomies, Medical Ports, Catheters

Inform the TSA Officer

Before screening begins, inform the TSA officer about the location of an ostomy pouch, medical ports or catheter attached to your body.

Screening in Standard and TSA PreCheck® Lanes

You can be screened without having to remove or expose the ostomy pouch, medical ports or catheter.

If additional screening is required, you will be asked to conduct a self-pat down of the device outside of your clothing, followed by a test of your hands for any trace of explosives, and you may also undergo a pat-down of areas that will not include the medical device.
