    I decided to finally join. My husband and I have traveled to Aruba the last two years and in three weeks we will be there again. I have utilized this site often. It is the place for information about Aruba. Thank you to all members that have posted such wonderful information.

    Thank you. We stay at the Divi AI. We love the low rise section of the island, so relaxing. We rent a Jeep and explore the island.

    welcome to the posting side

    check out the airport/airline threads.
    there is a thread or 2 there about departing aruba and going thru us customs.

    or

    you said arrival...do you mean clearing the aruba immigration once you arrive in aruba and clearing aruba customs right before you step outside?

    Hi! Welcome to the posting side of the Aruba.com Community Forum!

    Have you really dealt with 3 hour long lines coming into Aruba?

    Yes, I meant to say the Aruba Immigration and Customs. I am always so excited to be back in Aruba and then have to wait in line for 2-3 hours before I can get outside. I wasn't sure if anything has been improved. My husband and I both work so we can't leave until Saturday. We normally travel to Aruba Saturday to Saturday. We have found the airport the least fun activity on the island

    i have never known or heard that it could take upwards of 3 hours.
    that is indeed unfortunate that it took you 3 hours from deplaning to get to the outside.
    you should fill out the online aruba immigration card, print it (although the agent probably will not take it from you) that will help speed the process as you will already be in the system.
