Hmmm.......I will be receiving my visa in Korea(hopefully). Then I will fly home to Ireland, pick up my son, and then fly to the US. Now will this cause any problems? Also just wondering, will a one way ticket to the US be sufficient? And if anyone travelled through Shannon IE, is all the immigration stuff done there? I'm starting to stress out now! Also one more question. My passport is in my maiden name, and my visa will be in my married name.......will this cause issues? I hope not!!!!

Getting excited then? :)

Assuming your son's travel docs are sorted? I don't know what the problem could be. We had a stop in the UK before continuing on to the US and just went thru the usual visa check at the airline check in (they need to examine your visa to make sure you have permission to go to the US). If the PreFlight Inspection is up and running at Shannon, it's most likely that you'll clear Immigration there. If not, at your first stop in the US.

Your airline tickets must always match your passport. If the visa, or any other document is in a name changed via marriage, carrying a copy of your certified (translated if necessary) marriage certificate to bridge the name difference is a typical solution.

Many people travel this way every year :)

Best wishes.. we're all eager for your interview report!
