Departures Mia airport
Arrive in Miami at least two hours before your scheduled departure time for short-haul flights and at least three hours before departure time for long-haul flights. Even if you have already checked in online, it is still important to allow extra time for luggage drop-off, boarding ticket pickup if necessary, and the journey to the gate.
Preparation for the trip:
- Verify the status of the flight.
Before arriving at MIA, double-check your flight status online or call your airline to confirm your departure time, concourse, and gate.
- Prepare proper documentation.
Take all necessary papers, such as a valid ID card, passport, health insurance, boarding permit, and so on. When traveling with a child, make sure to check airline restrictions and provide all necessary documentation. The Federal Foreign Office may provide information on travel, entrance, and customs control.
