Restrictions on encryption

Many countries allow you to bring portable devices through border controls unchallenged, but some countries restrict the use of encryption.

Attempting to take encrypted data or devices to these countries without a licence can result in:

  • the device being confiscated
  • other penalties including imprisonment

Borrow a clean laptop

You can borrow a non-encrypted Windows laptop from the University's Clean Laptops Service. For details see Working while travelling, especially Before you go.

Only Windows OS laptops are issued. Other operating systems such as MacOS cannot be provided.
