    Hello I'm flying from Tampa (TPA) to Coasta Rica (SJO) with a stop in Miami. Is customs at TPA or MIA or SJO?


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Costa Rican Immigration and Customs when you arrive in San Jose.

    Flying Delta, same reservation. Do we need to collect luggage and go through additional security before boarding for Tel Aviv?


    You will just go through Israeli security at the gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags in JFK on the way to Tel Aviv.


  • Switch from international to domestic terminal?
    Apr 17, 2017
    If I am flying in from Costa Rica to Atlanta and then changing planes to Raleigh, NC do I have to change to a domestic terminal?


    You don't actually change terminals. You will arrive in Concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse.

    I recently got married do I need my marriage certificate with my ID if I didn't change my ID yet


    Does the name on your ID match the name on your reservation? If it doesn't, you'll have to bring your marriage certificate. If it does then you're fine.

    Which form must I complete when declaring funds over $10000 euros please


    You need to go through the red lane when you arrive in Amsterdam if you are entering the EU with over 10000 Euro and go to the Office Tax Refund / VAT Refund desk if you are leaving the EU with over 10000 Euro and Amsterdam is your point of entry/exit.

    I'm flying from Vancouver to San Francisco to LA with only an hour layover between flights. Will I go through Customs in Vancouver and be ok in San Francisco layover or do I need to go through Customs in San Fran and risk missing the flight? Also coming back, I go from LAX-San Fransisco-Portland-Vancouver with again an hour layover between flights. When do I clear Customs for Canada? All flights are connecting flights with United.


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in San Francisco is go from your arrival gate. On the return you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in vancouver.
