Item confiscated on Airport during departure, how to get it back

Ten days ago, I traveled to my hometown and I was carrying a water pump in my hand luggage. I carried the same in my hand luggage because it was expensive. The security check before the Kuwait Immigration checked the motor and allowed me to go but on the final security check before the boarding flight from Kuwait International Airport, the security men did not allow me to take the pump aboard the plane and took it from me. Now I am in Kuwait, Kindly advice!! Is there any possibility to claim and recover my motor and who do I have to meet.

Answer: You should have asked the security officer, who confiscated the pump, about how to reclaim the pump on your return to Kuwait because normally all the confiscated material is dumped after some time.

Moreover, the security officers who confiscate any material don’t keep a record of the same. The only thing you can do is visit the Security Office at Kuwait Airport and inquire about the same.

Although the chances of getting back the pump are very low, you might be lucky if the pump is still in the store where this material might have been dumped – if someone is willing to listen to your request in the first place.
