Hi,

Can you please advise me on the rules for international travel for someone on subutex, the person prescribed subutex needs to fly from Australia to Prague, once in prague understands that as long as has dr letter and all medication in original packets will be fine.
The problem is the layover on the way across. First choice would be to travel to seuol south korea but the layover is 19hours so would be staying in a hotel . what are the laws for south korea?
The other 3 flights all have a stop either Singapore, Abu dubi, Bangkok Thailand.
the layovers in the airports are between 4 and 9 hours, would not be leaving the airport only in south korea as that has a longer layover.
Which of the 4 places would be the best choice for travelling with prescribed Subutex with dr letters ect. As very worried about the whole trip.

Thanking you

Hi Chilli79, Welcome! I am very sorry but I do not have the answer to your question. There are a couple of people here that do a bit of traveling. I hope that they will be responding soon with advice.

I would check here. Look in the medical section for each country for recommendations.

Being a world traveler, not one country we've visited ever questioned my prescription for Suboxone in my carry on bag. Not from the Middle East to Africa to Iceland. Nary a word.

We had a recent member ask a similar question about going to the Philippines and I just assumed it would be no problem as my brother has brought Subutex into their country before. Reading the informative link docm2 gave us I still couldn't find anything related to a legal script from your doctor. No one has ever questioned my script or mentioned anything at all. My guess is that there will be no issue at all. But then, there are many countries we haven't been to.

Some research is in order to ease your mind.

As Rule mentioned, and I forgot in my first post, keep it in your carry on or on your person. This day and age too much stuff goes MIA from checked baggage.

Airports also have the capability of monitoring a persons behavior while in line. Eg; heart rate, pulse, etc. If someone seems nervous they pull them out and do a thorough search. I never even think about it an am only concerned with getting through the right way. Take off my shoes? Belt off or on? Etc... I never even think about my script only because I've travelled so much.

Yes, in the carry on bag. Never trust the luggage handlers.

Happy travels!
