Recommendations after arriving at Atlanta airport (ATL)
Carry on luggage
Don’t forget your aircraft belongings.
In case you expect a connecting flight and arrive in the early hours, the airport has 24-hour cafe options. If your are coming from another country and the connecting flight is domestic, you must collect your checked baggage (in case you have checked baggage) and do migrations. Other wise if your final destination is outside the United States, you don’t need to do so.
If Atlanta airport is your final destination and you have checked luggage, go to the baggage claim area and look for the carousel that corresponds to your flight. In some cases there may be two flights sharing the same carousel. If your luggage is missing, go to your airline counter or ask for help to the airport staff.
Follow the signals to pass migration control. If you are a foreigner, depending on your nationality, you will need to present a passport and visa (as applicable) and hotel reservation or address and phone number and name of the person where you will stay. Get ready for some questions that may be asked (they do not always ask) and just answer what they ask without giving additional explanations that may compromise you.
After passengers leave the plane, a corridor guides them up the escalators to the Arrivals level. where you will meet the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) This open area has passport control service counters.
The next stop on the Arrivals level is the baggage claim area. Baggage for Atlanta-bound passengers, connecting passengers arriving in Concourse F, as well as Atlanta-bound passengers arriving at Concourse E, will be shipped to all seven carousels.

Family, friends and others can wait in the Arrivals Hall to greet Atlanta-bound passengers arriving aboard international flights in Concourse E and F.
