Getting Through Customs

Has anyone else heard the quickest way to get through customs is paying the locals a few dollars? If so how can I find them when i get there?

There are luggage handlers (sky caps) that will help with your luggage. Just like at any airport....load the luggage on a cart, direct you to the customs inspectors, and out to transportation. But getting a quick pass or around customs, isn't going to happen. In reality, your not going to spend too much time going through customs, unless your arrival is at the same time of other international arrivals. Most time it has ever taken me from plane to curb is 30 minutes.

I was just in the Bahamas from Florida a few weeks ago. I would say it took maybe 10-15 minutes, at most, to get through customs. Very quick and painless.

Are you worried about Customs, Immigration or both (there are 2 different checkpoints)? Both are relatively easy and painless to negotiate and you should be through and on your way to your hotel in 10 to 20 minutes - your actual time will depend on the number of people who are ahead of you in line.
