Arrival via LAX

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife has been in Burma (Myanmar) for three months now.  She has a green card because she immigrated with me last year.  We waited in her (now our) son to get done with the school year before allowing him to join us.  He just got his IR2 visa issued, and they will pick up his passport tomorrow.  The next day they will fly into LAX.  I have never arrived internationally via LAX, although I have done so many times in SFO.

 

I am trying to create a map and email it to my wife.

 

They will arrive to terminal 8.  Where must they go for his immigration process?  It is not shown on the official web site map.

They can’t go wrong. As it is an international flight the passengers must all go through immigration. It’s unavoidable and the only way they can go when they get off the plane. Without knowing the exact gate, you can’t give step by step instructions anyway. Just tell them to follow “arrivals and baggage claim”.

Exactly!

If she’s confused about which line to stand in (as she has a green card but the son a visa) she can just ask a CBP official, they are always milling around  to help direct people.

Thanx all.  My wife would feel better if I can send her an email map.  She is a bit scared.

She can't get lost between the plane and immigration hall

There will literally only be one route they can take off the plane, and it will bring them to the immigration hall.

After arriving into the immigration hall, they would queue in the US Citizen/Permanent Resident line.
