    Are you referring to arrival through Aruba immigration or departure through U.S. Customs? Both have electronic passport readers.

    Does the online immigration form apply/work for those visitors arriving from countries other than the U.S. and Canada? Will be connecting through Curacao, so just wondering if to still go ahead and fill out the online form or the immigration card that they will give me on the flight.

    my guess is "Maybe" vallond.
    that link send one to the immigration form and on that form there is a box to insert "nationality"

    fill it out, and let's hope it suffices.
    if so, that'd be terrific.
    lots of folks visit aruba by way of curacao.
    they should have the perks/conveniences too.

    Thanks Andrea. Yes Curacao recently introducedthe passport readers at their airport and an online site to fill out theirimmigration form online. Looking forward to using this to speed throughimmigration. Then again they have introduced a new procedure for Transitpassengers in that they will no longer have to undergo a security check as theyalready underwent a security screening at the airport where they boarded. Afriend of mine recently connected through Curacao to Aruba from Trinidad and hesaid that it was quick. As for the passport readers they are only being usedduring peak arrival times
