  • Traveling from Peru to Seattle through MIA
    May 1, 2014

    I am going to be traveling from Lima, Peru to Seattle, WA with a connection through MIA on Sept 20th. My LAN flight from Peru arrives at 7:50 am at Concourse J. The Delta flight to Seattle leaves at 10:15 am from Concourse H. Is 2 hrs going to be enough time for me to clear customs and passport control? I'm a US citizen and will only have carry on luggage. Thank you so very much for your help!

     

    Please note that Delta does not fly from Miami to Seattle. The only airline that flies there nonstop is American.

     

    Thank you so much! Yes, unfortunately, AA isn't a preferred airline for me, so I chose to have an hour layover in Atlanta on the way back. Would you have any suggestions regarding the time frame I listed? Thank you again!

     

    OK, you should have plenty of time, especially considering you won't have checked baggage.

     

    Wonderful! Thank you so much!

    I will take AA from Toronto to MIA airport 1:30 pm and my cruise Embarkation time is 5:00 pm ,cruise disembarkation time is 7:00am and my flight will be 10:00 am ,can I make it?

     

    You should have plenty of time if your flight to Miami is on-time. However, you will have a really hard time making that 10 AM return flight.

     

    Thx,

     

  • Passport Control and US Customs

    I am keeping my baggage all carry-on. No baggage claim. I am a US citizen, returning from vacation in Peru through MIA. My connecting flight is American Airlines to my final destination, SFO. (San Francisco) According to the MIA map, I arrive at MIA on LAN in the South Terminal. I depart on American Airlines in the North Terminal. I have two hours and 5 minutes between flights to clear Passport Control and US Customs. Even without baggage claim, I might not make it. My questions: Can I choose which terminal to be processed through -- since I have no bags to claim? The MIA website says only: "International arriving passengers will proceed to U.S. Customs and Border Protection's passport control. After clearing passport control, passengers will proceed to collect baggage and clear U.S. Customs." That's very clear. BUT: Since I have no baggage to claim, can I just go over to NorthTerminal and get processed there? I may be wrong but I have a feeling North Terminal may be faster/easier than SouthTerminal and I have to end up at North Terminal for my departure anyway. Thanks!

     

    No, you have to clear immigration and customs in the South Terminal since you will be funneled that way, there will be no other option. By carrying on the only thing you skip is having to stop at the baggage claim and re-check desk.
