    Hi, I will be travelling from Vancouver to Dubai. I will have 3.5hrs layover in Dallas and connecting flight to London. My questions are: Do I need a transit visa to Dallas even if i am not going out of the airport? And do i need to collect my luggage and take on to my next flight which is to London? I'm a Philippine passport holder and my first time to transit to these places. Your reply will be very much appreciated. Thank you so much. :)

    Hello - I have an 80min layover in DFW, arriving from Lima, Peru (LIM) and connecting to Incheon, Korea (ICN). Will this be enough time with immigration and rechecking my bags? I'm not an American citizen. Any assistance would be much appreciated - thank you!

     

    It's below the minimum connection time by 10 minutes. However, since there's only one flight a day to/from DTW to those locations, you might as well try it. If you miss you'll get rebooked over somewhere else or get to stay in Dallas overnight.

     

    Thanks for the info! Very helpful.

     

  • Layover/Connection-Same Terminal Will I be waiting in Custom/Security?

    Have a layover in DFW (coming from inter nation, departing to international), andI know my connecting flight is out of the same terminal. This is my first time connecting at DFW, but have done intl-intl connections at JFK and ATL. People have told me that no matter where you arrive from and are departing too, you always clear customs are are re-screened. I remember this not being the case in ATL. What will happen this time?

     

    That is the case in ATL, DFW, and every other US airport.

    I am going to have a long layover at DFW coming from Sau Paulo. After going through immigration and customs, can I take my checked bags with me, and recheck them later with my connecting flight?
