Immigration Procedure

What is the procedure to exit the airport? If you are flying with AVIANCA, you need to approach their desk and request a printout of your itinerary and a proof of the AVIANCA TRANSIT TAX, many people have to come back and get this paper so please make sure AVIANCA staff is clear that you need the TRANSIT TAX FOR LEAVING THE AIRPORT, even if its included in the flight fees. The AVIANCA desk is at the end of the terminal, close to Gate 17. Once you have this document, you can come down the stairs and do the immigration procedure where you can get your $10 tourist visa. Its completely normal that Airport Personnel doesnt speak english so please have a screen shot of your tour details so Immigration Staff can read you are coming back to the airport the same day. There is a $10 visa fee for US, Canada and Australian Citizens. Europeans do not pay this $10. You dont need to worry about your bags, they are changed from airplanes by AVIANCA.
