flying to the US, questions (split topic)

Hi All,

This post is very helpful as I am having the same issue, whether it`s smarter to buy a one way or a round trip ticket.

1). One way or round trip?

My husband`s parents are flying in from Belgrade --> Frankfurt --> Chicago on a round trip flight, but we will cancel as soon as they arrive.

One way ticket was $1500 per person & the round trip was a LOT cheaper, $650 per person. We bought the round trip flight to save us some money. We are also a bit afraid because they are MOVING to U.S (IR-5 visa) and when they arrive to Chicago, the customs officer may question them why they bought a two way ticket when they are moving to US and coming in on a immigrant visa. I would love to get some thoughts from you guys!

2. Wheelchairs - good or bad idea due to Medical Exam at the time of interview???

HIs parents also do not speak any English, so we thought it would be a good idea to get the wheelchairs for them so that somebody can assist them getting to and from gates as this is their first time flying and it can be very difficult for somebody that has never flown before. They had their medical exam during the interview and both were super healthy. My husband is a bit worried if the wheelchairs will give them issues at the POE. If you guys think this is not a good idea to have wheelchairs, those are easy to cancel. I was wondering if any of you were in a similar situation and could help .

I would appreciate all the help!!!!!!!!! Sorry for such a long post.

  1. Purchase whatever is cheaper, CBP won't care. If you do purchase a round-trip ticket, cancel the return portion after they arrive.
  2. Using wheelchairs will not present an issue.
