A piece of advice and a question!

Hi all,

 

I'm due to fly tomorrow after being granted my K1 visa back in May. For those starting the process I would thoroughly recommend banking with HSBC, as I've managed to set up my US account and have been granted a credit card based on my UK credit history which should make life a little easier when I arrive!

 

For those that might know - How do you go about filling in the landing card? Does anyone declare values or is there no need?

 

Thanks,

 

James

List and value anything new like gifts, sunglasses you bought at the airport, big stash of teabags, etc. Your regular old personal belongings are not to be itemized and valued. My airport CBP officer said write household goods with no value. You are allowed unlimited "household goods" when you immigrate.

Perfect, thank you!
