Arriving passengers can enter the passenger terminal via the 2nd floor of the concourse building, except the bus gates. At the terminal, all passengers go through passport control checkpoints and subsequently collect the luggage from one of the 22 baggage conveyor belts, 17 of which are for international passengers and 5 are for domestic passengers. Passengers collect the luggage and pass through the customs control checkpoints. The custom control checkpoints lead to the arrival hall where passengers will find the Tourist Service Counter and many information service counters about transportation, hotel and accommodation.
