Use the Bathroom After Customs
If you haven’t noticed, most savvy frequent travelers make a beeline to immigration after they land (or arrive by ship). That’s because they know those lines can get crazy long in just two minutes—not just because of the flight (or ship) they’re on but because if other planes (or ships) land at the same time, those same two minutes can cost them an hour (depending on the country of origin of that other plane or ship).
So, use the bathroom just before arriving or after customs so you don’t have to stand around for longer than necessary. And of course, to save even more time at customs, be sure to check out Global Entry, NEXUS and Sentri.
