Hello VJERS. I hope you could help me with my query. After my plane lands to SFO, do I have to go to the Immigration Counter first before going to the baggage counter? My stop over will only be 3 hours then |I have to catch another flight going to DTW. So, |I was wondering if its time consuming.

Here are my questions:

1. Do I have to go to Immigration counter first before going to the baggage counter?

2. What line in the Immigration counter must I fall in line with? Is it the New Immigrants Line? |(Im a fiancee visa holder)

3. My fiance recently changed address. His new address is in the Affidavit of Support form but in my visa (inmy passport), its still the old address. He just changed city not state. Does it matter?

Thank You so much VJERS!

God bless you all.

Yes, you clear immigration before you see your bags.

You go to the visitors line, not the US Citizen or Permanent resident line.

If asked, just tell the truth. I doubt it will come up but the USA is a free country, so your fiance is allowed to move anywhere and anytime he wants.

The timing varies by how many planes full of how many people arrive at the same time. Just Thursday, our daughter cleared immigration at SFO in about 15 minutes with a Green Card but that really means nothing.

I have passed through SFO as a tourist - I have to say the customs staff were curtious professional and extremely friendly. If you end up on the wrong queue they will give you directions - Their treatment of this tired confused tourist is the main reason I intend to use SFO as my POE
