US Customs & US Immigration

Travelers returning to the US will go through US Customs & US Immigration inspection when departing Aeropuerto Internacional Reina Beatrix: Aruba International Airport

Aruba is a U.S. Customs Service Preclearance station. A preclearance inspection is the same U.S. customs inspection an individual would experience at any U.S. port of entry, except it is conducted in Aruba. Because of this, upon arrival in the U.S. you will not need to go through U.S. customs once again upon arrival on U.S. soil. You will simply arrive at your U.S. terminal as if you were on an ordinary domestic flight within the U.S. and either connect with your domestic flight to your final destination or leave the airport.
