hello people i don't write posts very often so bear with me here.

i need to know if ther would be any differance in going to sanford airport rather than orlando international for going through immigration

A POE is a POE.... each POE is trained to process all travelers...

YMMV

Hello~

My friend is head of immigration at Sanford Airport. Last time friends visited he met them at the plane and walked them through! Now I know you won't be lucky enough to get that treatment but that airport handles all the charter flights into Orlando so they know well how to handle the visas!

Best of Luck and if you have any problems let me know and I'll report back to him!

I don't know about these specifics airports, but there can be a difference in the typical wait times and typical friendliness/helpfulness there.

Is the EAD stamp at JFK guaranteed, very likely or merely possible? I'm still weighing up my options for POE, but as the flights via JFK to my final destination would be more expensive, compounded by high summer prices anyway, I'd rather know the odds.

JFK is the only POE that on average tends to give the stamp. but it's not guaranteed. Kris had thought about going through JFK but for the hassle and extra money it's not worth it since th trend to get the perm EAD seems to be about 2mths.

I Said hopefullt because it is not guaranteed. However, I will ask them for it and that's the best I can do. For me the flights look around the same in cost........
