It is you - or him - who needs to choose it. Consider that he may travel with an airline based elsewhere, with more options for destinations in the US.

Suppose he is coming from Australia, for instance, if he flies Qantas, his POE will be either Los Angeles or San Francisco. However, if he flies with KLM, his choice of POE will multiply tenfold.

POE is up to you and is the very first airport you land at in the United States. It really all depends on which airline you choose and where they fly in to.

Welcome to the forum.

Here is a link to CBP Port of Entry (POE) information. Google can be your friend.

Good luck on your visa journey.


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

Also make certain to leave enough time for getting thru immigration and customs before having to make it to a connecting flight. I like the idea of the USC meeting the immigrant at the POE and spend the night and then both fly to the final destination together--a bit more expensive, but it eliminates the need to rush to the next gate and miss the flight if CBP is slow or the person has never seen a IR-1/CR-1 visa before.

Good luck,

Dave

how much english should they know for POE

Depends on POE. I asked the CBP about the ability to speak Russian in Denver and they said they do have the ability to call on the phone someone who speaks the language. They also recommended that I give my MIL a letter with her name, why she is visiting, where she was staying and a phone number of a person in the US to call if there were any problems. Of course the letter would be a bit different for someone coming in on a K-1. My MIL speaks no English and had no problems on a tourist visa. I would just give her a letter with all the relavent information in English she can hand over along with the brown envelope.

Good luck,

Dave

P.S. are you going to be outside the secure area? Might plan to make a trip to be there and then fly to the final destination the next day just to help ease the transition.
