  • Indonesia to Sydney to Hawaii
    Apr 11, 2016
    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.

    Why aren't pets allowed in Dublin airport this makes no sense , a family that are away for weeks can't be greeted at arrivals by their dog ??

  • LA to Phili
    Apr 2, 2016
    Great site for first timers like me. My Fiji Airways flight arrives in LA from Fiji at 1:20 p.m and my connecting United Airlines flight to Newark at 4:20 p.m the same day. They both on separate tickets. Will I have enough time please? Cheers, Sandeep


    Yes, that should be enough time. Remember to take your bags with you to Terminal 7 to re-check, don't try to re-check at the re-check desk in the International Terminal, you won't be able to.


  • ATL layover to LA
    Apr 2, 2016
    Traveling from Buenos Aires to LA with a layover in ATL on April the 3rd and just under 2 hours between flights after arriving at 6AM, I'm aware that I have to go through Customs and Immigration and wait times can be a pain. Should I be worried about missing my next flight while waiting for immigration processing?


    You should have enough time. Especially with the early morning arrival. If you do miss your connection, Delta flies lots of flights from Atlanta to LA.


    Thank you for the answer, that's a relief. I'm now trying to determine if 1 hour is enough for my flight back from LA through ATL. No need to fill paperwork or wait in lines but I do have to do some moving across the airport using the tram and it sounds a little tight considering the size of the place.


  • Connection Time
    Apr 2, 2016
    Hello! My flight arrives in Terminal C and my connection is in terminal A. My layover is 52 minutes. Will I miss connecting flight?


    That's plenty of time. C is connected to A by a short underground tunnel.


  • gates
    Mar 16, 2016
    How can I find out what gate my flights will be arriving to and departing from? Do I have to wait until I actually check in to find that out? I'm not flying until June but would like to know how far the gates are from each other at each stop.

    Yes, Somali citizens need a US Transit Visa to transit the US, even if they are permanent residents of a country whose citizens do not require a visa to visit the US.


  • how to get over from Terminal 5 to terminal 4?

    Yes, the AirTrain connects all terminals outside security.


  • Wait time on March 14
    Mar 11, 2016
    How long is the wait time for flights from Terminal C to Cancun on Monday March 14 leaving at 7:45 am? We were told there is a long wait time at security.


    Yes, on Monday mornings security lines can be long. I would recommend arriving to the airport at around 6 AM.

  • Layover 1.5 hrs from international flight
    Mar 8, 2016
    I have 1.5 hrs layover in SEA from Hongkong before heading off to Edmonton, Canada. Is this enough time? I understand that I have to pass immigration and customs before go to domestic flight terminal. Thank you.


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly and all flights are on the same reservation.

    I am going to Dubai with a round trip ticket. Since I will be originally coming from Norfolk, Since my visit will be for 2 months or more I am planning to book a one way ticket only from Norfolk to IAD (where I will have my flight to Dubai). Since I have experience booking a round trip and again re-booking it again and again because of weather and business cancellation, I just thought that it will be more practical and less expensive if I book one way to IAD and book the return once I have finalized my itinerary. My question is this: Will Norfolk and IAD Airport will require me to have return ticket on hand since it is only a visit and I should be expected to return. Please advise. Prompt response is really appreciated.


    No airport requires you to have a roundtrip ticket. Additionally, there is no US Immigration, Customs, or passport control when leaving the US. You will just show your passport to the Emirates gate agent when checking in and boarding your plane.


    Thanks ZAP, it is a relief to know. Best regards
