Travelling with electronics

When you pack your bag to travel, remember to separate your laptop, camera, mobile phone, documents, money and other valuable objects in your carryon.
Electronic equipment needs to go through the X-Ray machine at the same time that you go through the metal detector, upon entering the boarding gate area. For this reason, these must travel with you.
But be careful not to surpass the 5 k (11 lbs) limit. For that reason, try to use backpacks and small bags.
See below which items should go with you in your carryon.

Electronics and valuable items only in carryon


Example: laptops, netbooks and tablets.
Máquina fotográfica
Example: digital or film, compact or professional.

Example: gold, pearls, and precious stones.
Celular desligado
Deactivated Mobiles

Example: Mobile phones, smartphones, and other radiofrequency communication devices.

Example: Bills, credit cards, and check books.

Video recorder

Example: portáteis, de mão ou HD.

Portable devices

Example: electronic readers, tablets, or smartphones.

Lithium batteries

Electronic devices or equipment that contain lithium batteries like watches, calculators, cameras, cell phones, laptops, camcorders or hearing aids, must be transported as carry-on baggage. Spare lithium batteries may only be transported as carry-on baggage and must be individually wrapped to avoid short circuits.

When transporting spare lithium batteries, please remember to:

• Pack spare batteries in carry-on baggage.
• Keep spare batteries in the original retail packaging, to prevent unintentional activation or short-circuits. If the original packaging is not available, you must effectively isolate battery terminals to prevent contact with other batteries and/or metals.
• Take steps to prevent crushing, puncturing, or applying pressure on the battery, as this can cause an internal short-circuit, resulting in overheating.


Hoverboards (motorized skateboards) are prohibited.

For security reasons and to comply with the recommendations of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), GOL does not allow Hoverboards (motorized skateboards), Segways, AirWheels, Solowheels and balance wheels (self balancing two-wheeled boards), in either carry-on or checked baggage. Other electronic equipment, whose batteries are not rated above 100 Watt-hour, may be transported as carry-on. This restriction does not apply to wheelchairs or motorized assistive devices for special needs passengers.​​​​​​​
