How to Get to Seattle

The closest international airport to Edmonds College is Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) in Seatac, WA. Washington state, not Washington, D.C. 

On the plane, you will be asked to fill out a declaration form (6059B Custom Form). Fill it out with your passport information and items for declaration.

  • Read the declaration form completely and fill out it out honestly. 
  • Failure to declare items (currency over $10,000, fruits, vegetables, etc.) on the form can result in seizure of your items. 

Keep the declaration form with you! You will submit it to the immigration officer.
