My Mom has a gold bracelet that she has never took off her

Customer Question

My Mom has a gold bracelet that she has never took off her wrist. She gained weight and is unable to take off her wrist. She is planning to visit Israel. Can she fly to Israel without cutting it off her wrist?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site.

Yes. However:

1) She will need to contact the airline (if she is flying El Al) ahead of time to let them know of the situation, and

2) She can expect to be taken aside by Israeli security for a brief time before boarding to ensure that the bracelet is indeed that - just a bracelet.

Provided that is done, she should not have any problems.
