We’ve got some good news for those of you who are traveling off island via the airport … the hassle of filling out customs forms is gone!
We’ve had several friends travel off island over the past few days, and all have stated that the airport is no longer requiring US citizens to fill out a customs form prior to entering security. That means no more scurrying to get a form, no more waiting in long lines to actually obtain a form, and no more holdups due to the form being filled out incorrectly. Sounds like a win all around!
Passengers will still have to pass through customs, but rather than filling out the form, passengers are being verbally questioned instead. You will still have to show your boarding pass and identification.
We’re not sure how long this will last, but in the meantime, it’s a pretty nice change.
In the event that the rule reverts back to where we need to fill out the paper forms again, you can do so in advance using an editable form online. Here is a link to that form:
