International students my encounter long processing times at U.S. ports of entry, as such it is recommended that you allow extra time between connecting flights.  St. Thomas provides airport shuttle pick-up service from both the Miami International Airport and the Fort Lauderdale International Airport.  Please complete the Arrival Notification & Airport Pick-up Form to schedule your pick-up.
