  • Global Entry interview
    Jan 7, 2015
    I would like to schedule my Global Entry interview during a layover at MIA because there seem to be a lot of slots available. GOES says the location is Concourse J. Can you tell me if the office is inside or outside security?


  • Grenada to London via Miami
    Dec 2, 2014
    Hi I have a return flight from Grenada to London via Miami all on American Airlines (AA 1021 - AA 56) The flight from Grenada lands at Miami at 12.45pm and the flight to London departs at 7.10pm am I able to leave the Airport for a couple of hours (British Citizen) and if I am do I have to pay airport departure tax on my return. Thanks


    Upon arrival in Miami you will go through US Immigration and customs and will be outside the secure area. You are free to go wherever you want. All US Taxes are collected at time of ticketing. Just be back at the airport by 5 PM or so.


    Many thanks


  • DFW to Miami to Puerto Rico
    Nov 13, 2014
    I will be flying from DFW to Miami to Puerto Rico and both flights are American Airlines. Will I have to do anything besides get off of one plane and get onto another?


    Correct, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you very much!


  • Global Entry from Havana
    Nov 4, 2014
    I will be visiting Havana, Cuba, as a member of a group participating in the "People-to-People" program for U.S. citizens. At this time I know only that our group will be taking a chartered airplane for the round trip between MIA and Havana. Will I be able to use the Global Entry kiosks at MIA when I return from Havana on the chartered flight?


    Since the Global Entry information is tied only to your passport, not your reservation (like Pre-check is), you can use Global Entry coming off a charter flight.


    Thank you.

  • Meeting arriving passenger in MIA
    Aug 4, 2014
    I am flying into MIA from London, arriving in Concourse E, but going through Customs


    What's your question?


  • Is 1 hour 45 minutes early enough to check in for international flight
    Jul 29, 2014
    I am flying into MIA from California, and continuing the next morning to Venezuela via Panama with Copa Airlines. I am looking for a hotel with an airport shuttle, and have found one, but it wouldn't get me to the airport until 6:20 a.m., and the flight leaves at 8:05. Would that be ok? I can fly all carry on if necessary.


    The Copa bag cutoff for international flights is 60 minutes, so as long as you're at the head of the line by 7:05 you'll be fine.


    Thank you for the information. Hopefully it will work.


  • Canada to Brazil via Toronto
    Jul 16, 2013
    I am flying from Toronto to Miami then Recife- Brazil my final destination . Do i need to do the immigration process in US?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. Then your arrival in Miami will be like a regular US Domestic flight.
