Due to various security measures and in case of doubt, the security officials would need to open bags without the presence of the guest. In case, the baggage is locked using regular locks, security officers would be forced to break them open. This may cause inconvenience to the guest and may be a hindrance to baggage security for the onward journey. Therefore to avoid loss and further issues, the Transport Security Administration requests guest travelling to the US to utilize TSA approved locks that can be opened by security officers using universal "master" keys so that the locks do not have to be cut. These locks are available at airports and travel stores nationwide. The packaging on the locks indicates whether they can be opened by the Transport Security Administration.
The U.S. Department for Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health inspection services (USDA - APHIS) has prohibited the entry of non-commercial shipments (including passenger baggage and mail) containing soyabeans, chickpeas and safflower seeds from countries including India where Khapra bettle (Trago derma grananium) is known to occur.
