Arrivals Information at Chicago Airport
As for departures, there is only one terminal for arrivals with three concourses; A, B, and C each with its number of gates. You will arrive at one of the concourses depending on an airline and the flight number.
Once a traveler arrives at a Midway International Airport on an international flight, they will proceed to the Passport Control. Travelers have to keep in mind that the lines to go through the passport control sometimes tend to be extended.
If you want to leave out the long lines with the expedited entry, you might want to check out two services: Global Entry and Automated Passport Control .
Global Entry is a program by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and enables quicken authorization for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. No minimum number of trips is necessary to qualify for the program. Travelers participating in the program may enter the United States by using automated kiosks located at selected airports.
Automated Passport Control (APC)
APC or Automated Passport Control is a free service that requires no pre-registration or membership. U.S. and Canadian Passport holders, arriving on an international flight, instead of filling out the declaration form can proceed directly to a self-service kiosk in the passport control area.
Claiming a Baggage
Once a passenger has finished the Passport Control procedure, they can proceed to the baggage claim area to find a checked in luggage. Midway Airport baggage claim areas are on the lower level of the terminal. There are several monitors located in the area, and a traveler should find their flight number on a monitor. There are carts available at baggage claim areas. For persons needing special assistance, there is a Skycap service available.
