Thanx, Jo-Ann. I wasn't totally comfy that my answer was a 'safe' one.

Yes, I filled out the form at home on line. My wife did that and went a step further this past trip and filled out the card form handed out on the plane.
When we deplaned and went down to immigration, outside of waving the form in the direction of the proper agent line the agent waved us on and never asked for either form nor did he ask us any questions or stamp our passports. We had everything out and ready for him.

I get the feeling that the system has become very 'loosey-goosey' down there BUT we did have to go thru a separate luggage scan line at the exit door of the baggage carousel room. What a PITA that was!

But, hey, it all led to yet another awesome 18 day vacation. :wink:

The original question centered on what to put down on the ED form with two different lodgings while on Aruba.

And...............




I suggest you stay home.

What was that for? Some kind of humor?
Seems like some sort of unnecessary dig at some ......? I don't get it.
Obviously more rude than anything.

Lefty, you have been around long enough. He often tries to be funny...and isn't and is often rude and condescending. That is just his "thing". He thinks it works, it doesn't.

I am heading down in two weeks and filled out the form online today for the first time. I am not sure that it will really save any time but it was easy enough to do so I figured why not?

Yeah. I'm well aware. I just wanted to publicly pick up on it.

More on the point at hand, when the airport is enlarged and modified the plans include a more sophisticated Customs, Immigration and Emigration Center thru which all US passengers will be funneled and include all the current and more improved electronic security checks.

There's a pretty inclusive animated video on the Aruba Airport website which now shows more than the initial showing.

I agree, I find him amusing too. I guess we differ in our sense of humor.

That remains the perennial problem with wit......some see it as witty....others add words like "half" or "dim" to qualify their reaction to it.....
