Where will Port of Entry be on wife's CR1?

Timeline

My wife is tentatively scheduled to leave the Philippines with her CR1 Visa on July 1st.

She transfers planes in Tokyo and then flies to Newark New Jersey.

She has a 3 hour layover in New Jersey and then flies to her destination Washington Dulles in D.C.

Will she have to be processed through Customs in Newark or Washington D.C.?

The POE is wherever she enters the US. Based on that flight itinerary, that will be Newark.

Does that mean her long processing will be taken care of in New Jersey and once she boards the D.C. bound flight she will be able to just grab her bags and go into my waiting arms????

If so, that would be great so that we can better plan her arrival time through those airport doors at the airport.

Yes, POE is first place she lands in the USA. She will have to pick up all her luggage and take thru customs and immigration and then they will be put on plane to go on. She must appear with her bags for customs. and they will be xray with her present. Even we as citizens go thsu this. Newark is not bad, the immigraiotn lines move pretty good.

Yes, Newark and yes, she'll be able to fly into your arms at DC.

We had a very easy time at Newark, the processing didn't take long at all- we were done before our lugage was off the flight!

Newark is a piece of cake--quick, efficient, and best of all--friendly.

If I were you, I'd fly up to meet her, or take the train--then you can fly into her arms !!

AWESOME! SO EXCITED!!! Yes, I thought about flying up to N.J. and meeting her up there but my Drivers Ed Class doesn't get out until 2:00pm in Mclean Virginia area and she arrives in Newark at 4:30pm.

Yes, Newark and yes, she'll be able to fly into your arms at DC.

Being that close, that's exactly what I would do. Meet her in Newark. If not, you'll see her before she sees her bags at Dulles.

yeah, if there is any way at all that you can swing the schedules, I would fly to meet her in NJ also. Even if you aren't there when she completes customs, you can meet here in the airport and fly back together.

Due to the proximity, I was thinking in terms of driving to Newark.
