Back from Honeymoon in Puerto Rico

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,

I apologize for these past couple weeks, not returning PM's and such, but life has been a blur. My Fiance (now husband) and I crossed the border at the Kingsgate crossing on July 6th (BC/Idaho crossing) with my parents truck full of stuff. No problems at all (they did not give me an EAD stamp after asking but told me I could get one at the local office in Jacksonville FL, will try that tomorrow) They did not even care about the truck or its contents even though I had everything itemized and a permission letter from my parents.

Got married on the 12th outdoors at my fiance's parents place, it was a dream wedding! Then we left the next day for Puerto Rico.

When My Fiance and I were planning a honeymoon, we both wanted to go somewhere tropical and with a different culture. PR was a natural choice. Though I was worried about getting back to Florida after the wedding.

I just wanted to let everyone know that we had absolutely no problems comming back from PR. You do not even go through customs, only airport security as it is a domestic flight. So comming back to mainland u.s. from PR is basically like flying within the u.s., all you need is photo i.d. to check your bags and get through airport security. Not once did I have to show my visa or even mention it.

PR was a great place to spend a week. I highly recommend it. My Husband and I will be definitely be going back.

Hope that this helps anyone trying to decide on a honeymoon.
