Hato: “Within half an hour outside”

airportWILLEMSTAD – “Within half an hour outside”. That's the name of the special action set up by the Customs and Immigration Service at the Hato International Airport. These airport officers want to give the guarantee to arriving passengers that they are outside the airport within a half hour after arriving and going through Immigration and Customs.

The action is in response to numerous complaints from travelers about the long waiting times at the airport upon arrival. The concept is borrowed from similar actions on other Caribbean islands. There is even an advertisement with the slogan ‘within an hour on the beach’.
