Clearing Customs and Immigration in Rio de Janeiro

Jump to last reply

I'm arriving in Rio de Janeiro with an hour and a half to clear customs and immigration before connecting to Salvador. I'm concerned with whether this will be an adequate amount of time.

Does anyone have any experience getting through Customs and Immigration in Rio? Is it a relatively smooth process (I know I need to get fingerprinted and photographed since I am a U.S. citizen)? Also, I'm a bit confused about the process. Do I get my luggage first then go through immigration then go through customs then re-check my bags? I'm switching to a different airline for my connecting flight, so I assume that I'll have to re-check in and re-check my luggage. Can someone clarify this procedure?

First-time international traveler and student here, guys. Really don't want to miss my connection!! Thanks a lot!
