Time to clear immigration & customs at MIA?

Jump to last reply

I am scheduled to arrive in Miami from Santiago at 6:10 am Dec 11, on a US passport. The friend who is meeting me called the airport and was told it would take two to three hours to clear immigration and customs!!! This is my first time arriving in Miami, and it hasn't taken me that long since I had to enter at Newark on a green card decades ago when they made permanent residents use the foreigners' line. I usually reckon on thirty minutes.

So, anyone have recent experience of arriving in MIA on a US passport? Do I need extra emergency food supplies?
