I have a UNITED Flight Departing from Hong Kong to Costa Rica with 1:50 layover in Chicago and 2:23 layover in Houston. I am worried I wont have enough time in Chicago (arriving Friday around 3pm)....Do I need to do Immigration, pick up bags and customs in Chicago or bags are already checked all the way through to Costa Rica? Thanks
Your bags will be tagged to SJO, but in Chicago you will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS Train to Terminal 1 and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My daughter is flying into LAS on Southwest, T1. I am flying on Hawaiian into T3. We are to meet at T3 Parking Garage, Valet Level V to get an Uber. We only have carry on bags. What would be the easiest way to get to T3 Valet Level?
She should take the shuttle bus from T1 to T3 after she arrives.
Hi, We will be flying LAX to ATL for a connecting international flight to Dublin. Our layover is 55 mins and both flights are Delta. Aside from likely running to our gate, is this enough time for our checked bags to make it onto our next plane?
Yes, that should be enough time for both you and your bags.
Im flying from London to Minneapolis (europeean) With a 1hour and 45 minutes layover. Is this enought time to make the Connection. Its booked as one ticket With a travel acency and is British Airways (american Airlines on the last flight)
That is barely enough time. You will arrive in Terminal 5, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the ATS Train to Terminal 3, go through security and to your departure gate.
Also, to confirm, you are connecting at ORD, correct?
I (US Citizen) have a Air Asia flight with my fiancee (Indonesian Citizen) from Denpasar, Bali to Sydney, Australia, We will have to collect our baggage and recheck it for our Jetstar flight to Honolulu, Hawaii.
Do we need to have a transit visa and clear customs and immigration and re-enter all the security checks. My fiancee has an Indonesian passport and I have a US passport.
Looking forward to your replies and thanks in advance!
You need to complete Electronic Travel Authorization online. Your Fiancee needs is eligible for Transit Without Visa if your layover is less than 8 hours. If it is longer than 8 hours or overnight, then he or she needs to apply for an Australian Transit Visa at the Australian Consulate.
Thank you very much! We were worried about the procedure and it's difficult to find information on the topic. The layover is 6 hours so the Electronic Travel Authorization online should be ok.
