  • Does non US citizen have to go through immigration when depature

    I m not a US citizen and will be leaving US from DFW, Do I have to go through immigration ?


    There is no US Immigration for anybody when leaving the US. You just show your passport to the airline as you board your departing flight and they note your departure to USCBP.

    good afternoon, I am traveling this Saturday from CHI to DFW, then I have to get in a plane to go to Mexico City, do I have to go thru security and customs in DFW? I have three hours layover, thanks


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in DFW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skylink train connects all gates inside security. You have plenty of time.

    Hi! We'll flight from london to Lima through Dallas. When we'll arrive in Dallas we'll have to check our baggage and pass the custom or we could go directly to the departure gate?


    In DFW you will go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. You should not have to do anything with your bags since you're on an International to International connection with both flights on AA (if your flight from London is operated by BA you may have to claim your bags).


  • I am arriving DFW on American and need to meet someone at internationa
    Jul 19, 2016
    How do I go to international terminal arrivals


    It's in Terminal D. If you don't have checked bags you can take the Skylink to Terminal D and then exit security and meet your friend at the exit of customs on the arrivals level. If you have checked bags and you want to meet your friend then you will have to take a shuttle bus to Terminal D after you get your bags.

    I'll be arriving from London to DFW at 720 and my flight outof DFW is at 850. Will that be enough time to go through customs? What is my process if I end up missing it? Go to a desk and get on another flight? This was all booked on the same ticket so I assume American will help with that.


    That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Yes, if you miss your connection you will go to a customer service desk and they will rebook you on the next available flight to your destination.

  • Is there a North Terminal
    Apr 21, 2016
    American Airlines shows flight 1607 from ATL arrives at North Terminal and flight 3426 to HDN departs from Terminal B. I can't find a "North" Terminal on any DFW map. Does such a terminal exist? What is approx. transit time between these two terminals for family with two young children


    You have the airports mixed up. It departs from the North Terminal at ATL. It will arrive in Terminal A or C at DFW. The Skylink train connects all gates at DFW inside security in less than 15 minutes.
