Arriving: What to Expect
Landing on the island for the first time is an exciting moment, and is often met with some anxiety. Most flights come in during the early evening so it's hard to get your first look at the island while in flight. There are a few things that you can do to ease your way onto Guam and minimize the stress to you and your family. Please visit the menu to the left for more information about what you can expect when you arrive.
Flights don't arrive on Guam normally until after 6pm, and you can expect hoards of tourists working your way through the airport along with you in most cases.
Unless you are arriving from Hawaii, you'll have to transit through U.S. Immigration Services. Make sure to look for the line for U.S. Citizens, normally on the left as you face the Immigration Officer's stations.
Have your passports handy to prevent delays and discerning looks from those behind you in line!
Then you'll go down the escalator to the Guam Customs & Quarantine area. There, you'll retrieve your bags and process through customs. A few steps out the sliding glass door and your Guam adventure begins!
You'll see an information desk directly in front of you as you exit, and payphones to the left if you need to make a call.

Bring a Pen
There will be a form or two for you to fill out while you're on the last leg of your flight for entry to Guam. While Guam is a U.S. Territory, the Island manages it’s own Customs (meaning they control what comes onto the island much like returning to the U.S. from a foreign country). So you’ll be asked to declare all articles brought from "abroad" just like you were re–entering the United States. The only items that generally cause a delay in Customs are plants, animals, and firearms. Make sure to check the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency’s website out the relevant portions of our website for detailed information on these items.
Have Passports Handy
While a passport isn't necessarily required for entry onto Guam from the United States, you’ll find that your passport will be the most commonly used form of identification when you’re travelling to or from Guam. Also realize that you’ll need a passport for any flights back to the U.S. that transit another country, most commonly, Japan.
After you exit the aircraft you’ll be directed to U.S. Immigration if you’re traveling from a foreign country. Following a brief stop at U.S. Immigration, you’ll go down the escalator to the Guam Customs & Quarantine area. There, you’ll retrieve your bags and process through customs.
