Just returned to USA from honeymoon in Thailand. Flew into San Francisco. Was sent for secondary inspection as I was traveling on advance parole. Spoke to 2 DHS officers who stated it will happen every time I return to USA after a trip abroad. Just wanted to share this info as I had read here prior to leaving there was no set rule what happens on returning some people were waved through others sent for secondary.  Maybe this is just the case for SFO or new guidelines. 



After waiting for 1hr&1/2, missing a connecting flight my passport was stamped and I was free to go. I wasnt asked anything this time or required to show any documents I had with me.


If you have a connecting flight after entering the States my advice is give yourself a good window of time to allow for secondary inspection.  Here on out I expect every time to be sent.

It depends on the embassy but I've read that it can be up to 3 months.

What does your I94 record status show after your return?

Nothing different from other trips, Date, Departure/Arrival & Location
