   Travel tips / Arrival at the airport


Guatemala airport procedure is smooth. Once off the plane, you walk down a long corridor, at the end of which is passport control. Sometimes the lines are segregated according to nationals and visitors. If you get in the wrong line, don't worry, they will take you anyway.

Some of the queues feed into one receiving slot and others into two. Check this out when choosing your line. Those that feed into two slots generally go twice as fast. At passport control, your passport will be stamped with an ENTRY STAMP, which will indicate the date of entry and permission to remain in the country from 30 to 90 days. Once through passport control, walk straight ahead to the luggage carrousels. Once you have collected your luggage, look for a person identifying themselves as the IMCoS group handler. He/She will assist you and provide transportation to the hotel.
