POE questions (split thread)

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My spouse lives in New Jersey and spouse's mailing address is in NJ. Once I get visa, Can I enter in different airport than Newark (International airport in NJ) ?

Has POE to be the same as where your spouse lives?

You can enter anywhere in the USA or it's territories. POE occurs at the first CBP entry even if it's just a layover.

Thanks for reply NLR.

What's first CBP entry? and Layover ?

Sorry, I am not aware of this term.

CBP entry = Customs and Border Protection checkpoint

Layover = A period of time when you are not traveling in the middle of a journey.

For example, say your first landing in the US is in New York, with a final destination of Topeka, Kansas. You will likely have a layover in New York, awaiting the next portion of your trip on to Topeka. For immigration purposes, New York with be your CBP entry point.

HTH.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

CBP = Customs and Border Patrol It is the section of the airport when you enter the USA that checks your passport and does anything related to entry into the USA.

a layover is a wait between flights. If you are flying from India, the chances of having a straight flight from India to your final destination in the USA is slim. Most times you will have to stop at one or more airports along the way. These stops and waits between flights are called layovers. If that layover occurs in the USA or one of it's territories, then you enter the USA at the first stop.

Lets use an example:

Say you want to fly from Mumbai to Denver. There are zero flights that go straight from Mumbai to Denver.

So you choose a flight that goes from Mumbai to Frankfurt (Germany) to Boston (USA) to Denver. Your entry to the USA will be in Boston. That is when you hand over your immigration package and enter the USA as a permanent resident. Each stop is called a layover.

Thanks NLR for great explanation.

I understood it. Will it be fine if my final destination is Miami and my spouse lives (permanent address) in New Jersey? She will join me in Miami after 5 days
