Help with the Tourist Card!

I went ahead and purchased 2 tourist cards online. However, when I printed the pdf file I was given, it just says one card..yet the receipt shows that I paid $20- for 2 cards. Am I missing something??

I think you need to contact the online company direct and ask

Does purchasing this card really save time at the airport? I have read it does and doesn't. Anybody recently have experience?

Yes. When I arrived in June, there was a long line to purchase the tourist cards. I walked right past it to customs because I already had it.

Even if you have the pre-purchased visa, you will still need to hand it in, then go thru immigration long-before you can head to the baggage claim area to get your luggage and then go thru customs before you exit the airport.

That's strange that I had issues getting all the cards that I paid for since it sounds like it was a breeze for everyone else..here's hoping they can fix this issue for me!

As has been said you still have to queue to hand it in
