just you have to give them the sealed enveloped, passport and I-94 Form, some general chit-chat, fingerprinting and then a big friendly 'Welcome to the USA'. It was a painless experience.

the traffic control officer will tell you what line, not always is the tourist line, in my case, I was alone, they guided me to the USC line


We can all make a difference. Please recycle

SOP (Standard Opertaing Procedure)

1) Complete the Customs Declaration and I-94 (the white one) prior to disembarking the aircraft.

2) Proceed to Customs and Immigration (visitors line)

3) When you reach the CBP officer, hand over your passport, I-94, and your "mysterious brown packet".

4) Officer will open and review the packet, ask whatever questions he deems necessary (or feels like asking)

5) Officer will write the "A" Number on the back of the I-94 and stamp a date on it (for Doan - he also put a circle on her K-1 visa where is says ENTRIES 1 and wrote 1 of 1.

6) Officer will take Biometrics (photo and fingerprints) of the immigrant

7) Officer may say Welcome to America (optional)

8) After clearing the BP officer - proceed to luggage claim and get luggage then get in line for customs inspection

9) Customs official will typically ask some questions (in our case the Customs official asked more questions than the Border Patrol Officer!)

10) May say welcome to America (optional)

10) In some cases they may send you to secondary luggage inspection (typical entry process)

11) When you clear customs - proceed to domestic flight (if any) or get the heck out of the airport and into the arms of your sweetheart!

Please add to anything I missed :P

3) When you reach the CBP officer, hand over your passport, I-94, and your "mysterious brown packet".

4) Officer will open and review the packet, ask whatever questions he deems necessary (or feels like asking)

At many airports, they will call someone to escort you to a room where a different CBP officer will review your packet. It's not a bad thing, they just get you out of the general visitor entry line to a room with chairs where you wait until the officers handling immigrant entries can process your paperwork.

Be sure they keep your brown envelope and you leave with the bottom half of the I-94 card that you filled out on the plane. That card is important and should have a date written on it. Sometimes they staple it in the passport, but sometimes they don't. Make sure you have it before leaving the line or room.

Ok, you got me, what is the "mysterious brown envelope"? My fiancee is coming June 12th and she didn't mention any envelopes she received from the Embassy in Managua.

She should have received a sealed envelop (basically it has copies of your medical and all the other documents you have filed so far at USCIS and consulate) and this sealed envelop is to submitted to Custom officer at POE. Your fiancée should have received it along with her passport, make sure she got it with her. It doesn't have to be brown in colour, mine was a bit yellowish in colour but none the less it was sealed.
