International Arrivals at T3:
Unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports in Canada and the Caribbean, you need to go through passport check*, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes).
* APC Passport Control: At Terminal 3, U.S. Customs Arrivals Hall, Automated Passport Control Kiosks (self-service APCs) collecting passengers' facial & fingerprint biometrics against their passports have been installed - approved by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The kiosks will process any passenger from the USA, Canada, or any of the 38 visa waiver countries without any pre-enrollment. The process takes about 90 seconds.
UPDATE: LAS accelerated its customs clearance process - upgrading APCs with Phase 4.0 automated passport control (APC) kiosks - consistent with global entry.
