x ray on arrival

Hi Can someone tell me if you have to go through a body x ray/scanner on arrival or is it just luggage and hand luggage?

I think some of you are confused on the difference of a metal detector and an Xray.

There is a metal detector but not an x-ray machine. Anyone who thinks they haven't walked through one at Male can't have visited in the 21st century.

Normally when you go through metal detectors at an airport you have to take off your watch, belt, empty your pockets of loose change etc etc. I have never ever done this when collecting my luggage off the x-ray machines in Arrivals at Male.

It might be there but I can't remember it! It might be even turned off. I will make a special effort to check it out when I am there in just over two weeks!

Fill your pockets with loose change and see if anything beeps at you. :-)

As said no xray , just metal detector and thats only departures . My femur is mostly metal plates and bolts but hasn't set it off before .

The only time I can remember was once at Marsa Alam .

If you do carry a hip flask and it contains alcohol it will be confiscated and not returned.
