As US citizens, AA did not give s any form to fill out for arrival in SXM.

Rather we were just asked purpose of visit, length of stay and where we were staying. Then we got the rubber passport stamp.

AA hasn't handed those out for quite a few years now.

Not true, Scubaman and Bluesfan. I was given a form in November; traveling on AA.

I mentioned it as someone said in their report yesterday said United gave them a form on 4 Jan.

We did not get a form on AA 31 Dec 2019.

We went exact same day last year 31 Dec 2018 and did get a form on AA.

Airlines May still Hand them out because they are clueless, but if you are from the US you definitely don’t need to fill out the form. This was since pre Irma.

Yes, I was surprised to get the form to complete on our United flight, since I read here that they weren’t in use. The immigration agent did look at them and reconfirmed the info about where we were staying before keeping the form.

Linda--we got a form on AA from Miami in October also. It seems there is no rhyme or reason.

As already stated, the airline staff in some cases are clueless. They have the forms so they give them out.

The question maybe should be, did anyone get asked for them by the C & I people on SXM? When the paperless change-over first took place we were given the immigration form and I think it may have been an arriving AA flight yet when I tried to hand it off at immigration the agent smiled, rolled her eyes, and told me they were no longer necessary.

We got forms to fill out on both of our trips last year on AA. Is strange that it is so inconsistent.

Our last three times flying in from CLT on AA we were not given any forms. Maybe it's a MIA thing.

Nope! Not just a Miami thing since we flew in through CLT. Methinks it's got to be a matter of the flight crew not being up to date on the rules and going overboard in trying to get it right?

Speaking of forms, I was surprised that nothing was handed out on our return flight into Atlanta in December. We have GE, so wouldn't need them, but is Atl all-kiosk now?

Yes, that's correct, no paper forms, if there are kiosks.

JFK - at least the JetBlue (terminal 5) terminal doesn’t even have you stop any longer. I was so surprised. I have GE but used Mobile Passport this last trip and we cleared and just left the building!

We've never had a form to fill out for St. Martin from any airline in the past, and that includes Delta and Jet Blue. Mexico, yes ... very single time. But not once for SXM. Just the usual questions when we get go through customs.

I was shocked about the arrival at JFK as well kim... I kept thinking we missed a step and was waiting for someone to start yelling at me!

We ran into the same thing on Delta in Nov. No Global Entry for us and no forms. I asked and was told it is all electronic/kiosk now.

Thanks, JD. I didn't really notice since we went right to the Global Entry area.
