Things you SHOULDN’T BRING:
Fruit (and often nuts and seeds)
This might vary a bit per country, but more often than not, this is a no-no. I once saw a woman try to bring a bag of oranges on a flight from Mexico to LA, and she freaked out when they told her she had to dump them. And she absolutely had to dump them.New Zealand actually x-rays bags coming into the country, searching for, among other things, fruits, nuts, and seeds. It’s not hard to understand why. They don’t want to risk contaminating what they grow in their country with the bugs, fungus, bacteria, you name it, that your local produce has somehow handled.
