I arrive from Belize at 2:50pm on a saturday. My connecting flight to SFO is at 4:10 pm. I will not be checking bags. 1 hour 20 min. layover. Can I make it?
With no checked bags that's possible if everything goes perfectly - us the Onestop immigration if you can find it.
Thanks for the tip
Do you mean the mobile pass app? What is ones too immigration?
Onestop is an immigration line for people who don't have checked baggage where you do Immigration and Customs all one step.
We are arrived no from Mexico with a connection in Houston to Toronto Canada . Do need need to clear US customs as we are only connecting
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
Arriving from Cleveland at 10:50 am and departing to Liberia, Costa Rica at 11:25 am. United Airlines on January 22, 2016. Seems like a really short layover. Will that be enough time? Thanks!
That will be difficult, you will have to hope the flight from Cleveland is on-time and hurry. At least there is a 5:35 PM flight to Liberia if you miss your connection.
Oh that's good to know! Later is better than never! Thanks so much for the information. Have a great day!

1 mother with 2 children age 8 and 10, arriving from Caracas on United 1045 at 12:25 pm, connecting to LAX on United 1121 at 2:20 pm. Is 2 hours enough time to clear immigration, customs, and so on? Need to change terminals? Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will arrive in Terminal E and depart from Terminal C, which are connected to each other.
Thanks so much ZAP :-)
Im flying in on United UA - 1789 at 6:30pm and Departing on Air New Zealand NZ - 29 at 8:00pm.... is this enough time to clear customs? And which terminals will i be using? Thanks!
Where are you flying into IAH from?
Calgary, Canada
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in IAH is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. You will arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal D.
Oh ok great! Thank you for the speedy replies!
Flying from Lib Costa Rica to Sea Tac. Arrive at IAH 5:15 PM depart 7:00 PM all UAL one ticket. (Connection is listed in UAL on line.) I have NEXUS. Do I have enough time? Is it risky?
ADDITIONALLY: the flight is on Wednesday , Jan 25. UAL had canceled this flight earlier, forcing me to take a 7:50 AM flight from Lib. (with a 3 hour layover). Now they have re-instated it, and I am considering re-booking.
You can't use NEXUS unless you are coming from Mexico or Canada. That connection time is sufficient.
I arrive at IAH on 12/10 Saturday 8:35 pm and then have to catch a flight to Santiago, Chile at 9:35. 1 hour layover, will I make it in time? And which terminals will I be going to/from?
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. You will arrive in Terminal C or E and depart from Terminal E if both flights are on United. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have a similar conenction will the fact that its international cause me to go through additonal security/screening compared to a domestic flight
No, there is no special security or screening for International flights.
I will arrive in Houston on a united flight, then I need to change airline to Emirates, do I need to get out the terminal and enter again? or inside the terminal I can check in on Emirates desk?
Yes, you will have to exit the secure area, claim your bags, go to the Emirates check-in desk in Terminal D, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate.
Hi, I'm flying in from New Zealand on the 22 Dec landing at 1:45pm. Then catching the 4:15pm to NYC. Is this enough time to clear immirgation, get luggage, clear customs and travel inter-terminal? I'm getting info that says check-in for NYC closes at 2:15pm - is that right for a 4:15pm flight to NYC?
Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation. That check-in cutoff is incorrect and you will be checked in for both flights in New Zealand if they are both on the same reservation.
Many thanks, appreciate it
