  • Do you have to collect your baggage?
    Nov 30, 2014
    Hi, I am arriving in Miami International Airport from Dallas (originally from South Korea) at 10:36 pm on Dec. 3, 2014 and leaving for Grand Cayman the next morning at 11:20 am. I am going to stay at a hotel inside the airport. Do I need to collect my baggage and go through immigration, customs and everything at Miami arirport? Please let me know. Thank you!


    All international arrivals in the U.S. will need to go through the immigration process - in your case it will be at Dallas AP. If you bought your flights on one ticket your bags will automatically be transferred, if not, check with your airline.


  • Aa from San Juan to MiA then London

    I have an American Airlines flight from San Juan to Miami then onward with British Airways to London. Will my baggage be checked thru to London or do I need to collect and recheck at MiA. Also will I need Agriculture check at SJ?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs and then re-check your bags with US Airways at the re-check desk. Your bags will be tagged through to CLT in Doha (or your original point of origin) but you still have to do this. At that time of the morning your transfer should take 60-90 minutes.
