Oh boy. our deed is in our house in sxm... this should be interesting... I have to hope they will accept us looking at our passport that has St.M. all over it, and except that we own... Passport stamped only Sxm... But I will look into this... what is something else to worry about. Just want to get there. And yes Carol!!! I understand your dismay over my too many posts about this experience... I should not have vented as much as I did. this is not the place... This is a vacation board. We are owners. lots different.

While it says you must be able to prove yourself having reason to be there along with finances to allow you to be there and a place to stay while there, I don’t see that it actually requires a ‘deed’ though perhaps I missed it. I’m sure you can provide a legal resident status or property ownership in some other way - perhaps a utility bill or something of that nature? Good luck with your home and I hope it is in far better shape than you have been anticipating.

Many people go to SXM many times that do not own property, so passport stamps will not do it, I expect. I would think that you should have SOME documentation in the states that shows you are the owner of the property. That shouldn't be too hard to come up with.

Regarding your posts here, I am sending you a PM.

Hmmm. Well my parents aren’t going to make it to the airport to meet us, so I hope they just recognize my name, see my passport stamps and let me thru!
