POE Seattle information

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know roughly how long it takes to get through Seattle.  I have searched and seen some say as little as 15 minutes and other saying they waited 4 hours.  The flight is landing at 8:05 PM.  Was wondering how many hours we should have between our next connecting flight.

 

Thank you

You can see stats of how busy a POE is by time  of day on the CBP website

2 hours minimum between flights. I usually go with at least three.

 

 

I am sorry it appears I missed something rather important in my post.  This would be for a K1 and K2, anyone know how long they should have between flights.

Doesn't matter k1/k2 or IR visa,  paperwork takes about the same amount of time.   It is all about how busy the POE is and how many intending immigrants ( or others requiring secondary inspections) are trying to enter at that time

So they are landing at 8:05 PM and I found a direct flight at 11:45 PM, otherwise next available flight would be the next morning at 6 AM. 

 

If we go with the 11:45 PM flight that gives us 3 hours 40 mins.

 

You all think that is enough time to go thru POE, collect bags and go to check in counter for next flight so they can check in their bag, and then finally back thru TSA?
