Hello, I am a Venezuelan citizen and flying from Venezuela arriving Miami to connect to a flight to Toronto, Canada. Should I go through custome/immigartion in MIA? Will my luggage be going directly to Toronto from Venezuela? Both are AA flights in the same e-ticket . Thank you very much for your help!
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in Miami. You will need a US Transit Visa.
I will be on a flight landing in Miami from Havana, Cuba at 6:50pm. Possible (last of the night) flight to Philadelphia is at 9:50pm. I am flying American airlines for both and will only have a carry on. Is this do-able with customs? It would be great if I did not have to pay an extra nights hotel charges. Thanks in advance.
That should be plenty of time.
Hi,
I am wondering whether I should order a flight with only 54 minutes between flights.
The flight arrives to MIA at 9:41am, and leaves to Brasilia at 10:35.
Both flights are AA.
The alternative is waiting 6 hours in MIA.


Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hello!
I'll be flying from Madrid to Miami arriving at 15h45 where i have a stop. our connection flight to San Jose is at 17h47 so only 2hours. Is it enough to pass the migration, border etc..?

That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi. I am for the first time needing to change concourses in MIA. Can I walk form concourse D to Concourse J inside security or are there any other ways to get between the two concourses without leaving security zone? Thanks!!
No, there's no way to get from D to J inside security.
Is there an "usual" gate number for the arrival of flight AA160 DFW to MIA arrival 4:13 PM and the connecting flight AA959 MIA to PTY departure 5:55 PM. The locations and distance for the connecting flight. Need to determine how hard is it to make the connecting flight.
There are no "usual" gate numbers. You should have plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate which shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.
My question is I have about 1 hour time to change flights from Miami airport to Santiago Dominican Republic will that work?
If your first flight is domestic and both flights are on American that is enough time.
I am flying on American Airlines on British passport from LGA, NY to Aruba via Miami (one ticket). Flight due to land in MIA at 16.43 and flight to Aruba departs at 17.30 (only 47 mins connection time). Is this enough time to catch the flight? Will I need to collect and re-check my baggage or will it go straight through to Aruba? Will I need to clear immigration/customs etc?

TIA


You have enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.
