Clear CIQ at: General aviation aircraft are directed to park at a very remote north apron called “Chivatos” located at the end of Taxiway J. Customs and police inspectors meet aircraft and perform extensive screening, often with dogs, before allowing disembarkation. Occupants (including crew) are required to remove all personal belongings from aircraft, and crew and passengers are then barred from access to the aircraft until departure. Passengers and crew then transported via bus to main terminal for final customs clearance. During this final process, CIQ officials check that reciprocity visa fee has been paid or verified on each passport from previous visits.
