Question about PoE

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: England
Timeline

At point of entry, when you hand your papers and whatever else is required to the CBP officer... are you subject to any stricter rules in regards to being checked for customs items, than perhaps that of an ESTA entry ?.. example: is there a mandatory search of your bags or anything like that? just a question as im gonna be needing to get through the whole airport immigration very quickly so that i can catch another flight right away with my fiancee.

Thanks in advance for any help

How long is your layover? It's not advised to have a short layover time when entering with an immigrant visa (even if the K-1 is technically non-immigrant)… I would plan minimum 2-3 hours.

I agree with didopage. The Immigration officer at the interview suggested we get a layover with a minimum of four hours in case it took longer. They did not go through our luggage, but the queue was really long and it did take some time for all the paperwork and questions to be answered. I was glad of a 4 hour layover as it reduced my stress levels by not worrying about our connecting flight.

which airport will you be going through? My husband went through JFK and well it took us less than an hour with immigration than we went and got our baggage (one suitcase was missing :/ ) about another 10 minutes and got out. So an hour tops. They didn't check our baggage or anything.
