Bc Dubai is an international hub. Pls don't answer if you don't know. Are you aware that London also has the preclearance? So I just want to make sure from people who know, if dubai also does it?

Thank you!

I think the other poster meant well. It sounds counter intuitive to have a POE located overseas and we're used to the practice in Canada, that it's easy to forget places like Dublin, Shannon and Dubai are also POEs.

Perhaps they were removed? London was never on the list but Dubai was all set to go along with Abu Dabi.

I didn't think that London was a POE. I fly through their reqularly and have never been given the option to clear US immigration before boarding. I always go through immigration in the US.

I know that Canadian airports are POEs, and I think that Dublin is also a POE, but I don't think London is.

To the OP, sorry, I don't know about Dubai.
