Port of Entry to the USA

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has never flown to the United States before and she will be flying solo because of my work that I cannot go to the Philippines to fly with her. I was wondering, can someone share your experience with me about your flying experience and your port of entry(POE) to the USA? Does she have to check through a different entry when she arrives in the USA? Her destination is flying from Manila to Minneapolis, MN. Thanks in advance for all of your help. God bless!!!!

I was alone as well when I flown to US the first time with a K1 visa. My route was Manila to Taiwan then Taiwan to California then to JFK New York =) B-) Its a little scary but i did it so Im sure your wife would be fine as well. In the POE, she just need to give the packet to the consul and she'll be fine, no hassle...just make sure that your wife have the important documents on her hand carry not in luggage =)

It is not difficult to fly alone ( even your wife didnt ever come to US before ).

I personally had my first international POE for US ( alone ), and it was super easy, really quick at JFK. I even had layover at Brussels, but it was quite easy to go for connection flight. Only thing that needs to keep in mind - Read carefully, follow the instructions or better to ask someone for help if needed. It is easy, fun! :)

She would go thru " visitor " line, and instructions would be there. It is easy! Just tell her - if she has any difficulty to figure out there, then better to ASK! Don't hesitate to ask if she needs direction or further instruction.

I fly internationally all of the time... MSP is a super easy POE... LAX blows. She should have no

problem at the airport. Mid-Western folks, Mid-Western courtesy from my experience.
