Has anyone filled out the immigration forms on-line with HAL? Did you get to board any sooner than those who stuck with the paper forms? We're only a couple of weeks away from the sail date. Is it too close to do it on-line?
We did ours online for our cruise tomorrow. Be sure to make a copy to bring with you when you board, just in case. I'm not sure of the cutoff, but I remember hearing something about 30 days prior. I'm sure if you call H.A.L. they will tell you.
I tried to fill out the forms on line but the site would not allow me to. I printed the forms and plan to bring those to HAL at check in. Were you actually able to type in all your info and e mail it?
I typed in all our information on the form and it worked fine. I can't remember if there was a "submit" button, but was told to print out the completed forms and bring them with us to embarkation. Very simple to do - just follow the instructions. I didn't e-mail it.
Just returned on 6-19 from Alaskan cruise on the Maasdam. Filling out the immigration papers on-line does not help you embark any sooner. There is no submit button, you just fill it out, print it out and take it with you.
Toley - haven't sailed yet so can't answer your question, but I guess "tjonet" has answered it for both of us. I don't understand the reason behind filling out these immigration forms on line if they do not speed up the embarkation process. We'll just have to wait and see.
Doing the Immigration Form on line does not get you aboard any faster. I think their reasoning to have people do it is to cut down on the number of folks who arrive for embarkation and have not filled out any forms yet. That holds everyone up.
We did not do the forms on line as I was not willing to put our passport numbers, date of birth, addresses etc on line. We had completed the forms that come with the documents and had no problems (or hold ups) at all.
Thanks, sail7seas. I definitely see your point. We've certainly seen people filling out the forms at the desk rather than at home. Guess some passengers don't really look the docs over well prior to embarkation day.
