  1. Isn't Fort Lauderdale a suburb of Miami? If you don't want to put Miami and FOrt L. Is not on the list, then select "other".

  2. Personally ... I don't trust the online system ... it still has too many bugs.

    Print out a paper AR-11 and send it in via CERTIFIED MAIL.

    Keep a copy and the mailing receipt for your records.

  4. If your friend entered through the Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport in Broward County the CBP code is 5210. If she/he entered at a different port of entry then is is probably "other" but let me know in a comment. Cheers CCA
