So all you need, is to come over, bring with you your current valid CEPT license, your equipment and that's all. Your Call Sign will be your home call with the prefix 4X/.
Now some other pointers:
For your electric chargers - we use here 220 volts 50 Hz. You may need a voltage converter for all your electric needs.
Your hand-held should have a built in PL (private line) we use here 91.5 to trigger the repeaters.
A repeater list you find on our web page http://www.iarc.org/old-index.html
Bring some kind of antenna with you, like a magnetic mount, for possible "hotel balcony" or car operation.
For security; by "checking - in" or "on the flight", either take your equipment apart, meaning disconnect battery, antenna, handheld microphone, and place everything in a different part of your luggage, so the X-ray people at the check - in point, can see that it doesn't work.
Or take it complete (all connected) in your hand luggage, show it by security check-in, together with your license.
