It’s best for you to remove those stuffs outside the queue, so they do not bother the procedure as you can save more time.
4. Put Out Electronics
Electronic devices with considerable size such as video cameras, laptops, or tablets need to be put out from your pockets or bags during security checks. Furthermore, make sure the small electronics are also put out from your pocket.

As prevention, it’s better for you to avoid using sandals for international flights, rather than dealing with a barrage of questions from airport securities that will prolong the procedure time.
6. Check the Distance of The Departure Gate
In the vast and very busy international airport, it’s possible that departure gate is sometimes far from the checkpoint. So, you should provide a longer time span for international flights.
