A split ticket consists of two tickets. Usually, airlines check in the baggage until the last destination in a single ticket; exceptions are rare.

In a split ticket, the passenger needs to check-in again their baggage at the airport of the split, meaning, at the airport where their first ticket ends and the second ticket begins.

What could be difficult in this situation is that the passenger needs to leave the migration area to receive their baggage and check-in again. The airport migration authorities might ask the passenger to present a visa or another document to do this. In this case, legally, the passenger enters the country of connection to check in the baggage again.

In case of splits and check-in baggage, please, always check the rules of the country where the split is happening.
