is Puerto Rico a port of entry of the United States?

No, POE would be a place within any of the 50 states and does not include any of its territories (PR, US VI or Guam)


YMMV

Of course its a POE. Been thru there several times. You come from a foreign country, you clear immigration and customs. Otherwise ppl could come into PR and take a domestic flight into the mainland without clearing immigration.


I finally got rid of the never ending money drain. I called the plumber, and got the problem fixed. I wish her the best.

Is your answer is contradictory? You say it is a POE to the US but then you say that you cannot enter PR and then take a domestic flight to the US mainland. The issue at hand is exactly that. You cannot enter PR and then take a domestic flight to the mainland. When you leave PR and fly to the mainland, you will clear immigration and customs again upon arrival. Right? or am I misreading something.

Acording to the US Customs Agency Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands are ports of entry, not pre-clearance, but full blown customs locations. Teritories like Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands are considered US Soil.

These locations are considered to be POEs

Aguadilla, Puerto Rico (Rafael Hernandez Airport)

Fajardo, Puerto Rico (Diego Jimenez Torres Airport)

Isla Verde, Puerto Rico (Luis Munoz Marin International Airport)

Mayaguez, Puerto Rico (Eugenio Maria de Hostos Airport)

Ponce, Puerto Rico (Mercedita Airport)

San Juan, Puerto Rico (Luis Munoz Marin International Airport)

Puerto Rico is the POE, when you then fly to the mainland, you wont have to go through customs at the domestic airport. The reason for this is because Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands are vacation destinations for many US citizens with flights to and from from all over the USA from airports that are not Ports of Entry, the vacationing US Citizens are not required to have passports, and would have problems returning to the USA.

San Juan IS a POE. Flying from San Juan to US or backwards is a domestic flight. I'll do my POE at San Juan in just 2 weeks. I'm flying out of Brasil, making a connection in Panama and then straight to San Juan. I've done Miami-San Juan and San Juan-Miami and didn't go through customs.

??? youre misreading something. I said it is a port of entry. All flights to the mainland are domestic flights. You come to PR from a foreign country...you will clear customs and immigration in San Juan.
