I think everyone is aware of this and has to abide by it. When you travel by plane, you have to go through a gate with scanning unit that detects what you carry with you. That's even not enough. Frisking is still done to make sure you carry safe things aboard. In my experience, Singapore airport is a lot stricter than those in other countries. When my passport was checked, it took quite a while. The inspector looked at the photo and looked at me again and again. I understood it was probably my hair was a longer than in the photo. On my way back home I had to change at Singapore Airport again. My handbag had to be checked again, as usual, it happened to all. He repeated the checking several times until he called me to look at the screen. He was suspicious of the thing resembling a knife inside the bag. He asked me to open it. I knew it was a thingy --- a Big Ben for souveneer. He let me go when he knew it was.
