The international departure area here is bleak and depressing. Any joi de vivre you might find elsewhere in Brasil has been stripped away from here. If anything landside is marginally better than airside. Dark and gloomy waiting areas very few amenities and those are mostly on an upper floor not on the main floor. Really overpriced duty free shops - look at photographic or electronic goods prices if you want to get a good laugh before embarcation. Yes those are US dollar prices. It is even hard to read here unless close to the windows as the ceiling is dark and the lights though numerous seem to more like candles in the distance. Inbound the immigration queues can be slow particularly for non nationals from outside Latin America. It is not that the agents are particularly rigourous but that they are not very numerous.
