POE

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just started a new job a little while ago and can't get vacation for a bit so it doesn't look I can fly back from Manila with Diana. We plan on having her fly from Manila to LAX on a Friday and I will fly from DFW, meet her at LAX we spend the night in LA then Sat. AM we fly back to DFW. She is worried about transferring in airports hence the direct flight.

Have people done the entry alone or is the fiance always there? I have heard LAX POE referred to as a tough one several times in these message boards are they tough on K1 people or is it just the chaos that is LAX? Do I need to find a way to somehow get on the flight from Manila with her? Have any of you women come through LAX alone and met your husband/fiance outside customs?

Thanks for any help.

Nothing to worry about for the POE,just have a couple of question like when is the wedding,how old the fiance,and some reminder about the 90 days for K1,finger scanning and thats it!!!

Yeap, other than going through a line to process her paperwork, once she is free and clear of that line, she operates like anyone else in the airport so she checks the outbound flight monitor for her next flight, notes the gate and then off she goes. If she has any smarts at all she can do it.

You shouldn't be worried. The immigration officer at her POE will just open the envelop, and then will instruct her for finger scanning. Then, some few questions regarding you and her.

Then, she can proceed to her next flight if she needs it.

i went all alone and it was my first flight abroad. i was the last one to get processed by the immigration officer because i missed their booth. :P i was unfortunate that the officer was training other younger officers and took his time making my case an example. after the little "interview" and reminding me that i should go back home in the case that my fiance is really not who i thought he was :wacko:, they finally let me go. and because the airport was so huge (had to take a mini train to get to my terminal), i got a little lost. but in general, i did fine. :lol: hope your fiancee have better experience. :D
