Level: 6 (or 7 if it is a round trip port key)
A Portkey is an object enchanted to instantly bring anyone touching it to a specific location. Most of the time, a Portkey is an everyday object that would not draw the attention of a Muggle. Travelling by Portkey is said to feel like having a hook “somewhere behind the navel” pulling the traveller to their location.
Some Portkeys are preset to travel to their destinations at a specific time, while other Portkeys are triggered immediately by a person’s touch. This is decided when the port key is created. Both types of Portkey travel to the destination along with their users. With touch-activated Portkeys, touching it again might transport the users back to their original location. Time-activated ones can be handled before and after their assigned moment of use without effect.
The creation of unauthorized Portkeys incurs some sort of punishment, however the Department of Magical Affairs does not have the ability to detect the creation of such Portkeys.Harry Potter Items
