    Hi I am traveling from Montreal to Phoenix with a stop in Atlanta, does I have to go through inmigration there? I am mexican. Thanks!!!


    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    buy before trip with mailing application and passport to DC Tanzania embassy or buy upon arrival in JRO?


    I doubt anyone here has any personal experience with the Tanzanian Embassy in Johannesburg. Note that if you're a US Citizen you can get a Visa on Arrival in Tanzania.

    Hello, we are flying from Maui to Los Angeles, codeshare United flight with Air Canada connection to Toronto. Termnal 7 to Terminal 2. Do we leave secure area?


    Yes, you will have to leave the secure area, walk or take the shuttle to Terminal 2, and go back through security.


  • Lost in Security
    Jan 22, 2016
    Piled all your items into a bin for security scanning? When you pick it up the other side do not just empty it and walk away in the happy belief that you left nothing behind. Wheelchair pushers (when you're not looking) and Security staff have a habit of moving some of your kit into separate bins. That's how 2,000 items a month end up in Lost Property at Orlando. Probably the same worldwide.


    Better yet, instead of emptying your pockets into those bins, try putting everything in your carry-on or personal item BEFORE you get to security instead.


  • Traveling to Montreal Canada from Denver
    Jan 19, 2016
    I am flying to Montreal next week, going through Philadelphia. Do I go through customs in Denver or Philadelphia... or not at all.. just have my passport with me? I am a TSA Pref passenger. Thanks for your advice!


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. On your way to Montreal you will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Montreal. On your way back, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal.


  • Why did Ihave to re-enter TSA check
    Jan 13, 2016
    Upon my arrival from Dominican republic. My luggage was lost and I had a connecting flight to Tampa. I had to go in a long line and go through TSA check point to get back in the terminal


    Yes, every time you enter the US after an international flight, if you are connecting to another flight, you have to go through security. This is true at every US airport.


  • Passport

    Flying to Florida in April and again November from Chicago 2016. Am I going to need a passport?


    You will not need a passport in April. It is not known yet if you will need one in November. The TSA says it will give 120 days notice if they will stop accepting any drivers licenses. They as of yet have not given any notice to that effect.

  • Illinois Drivers License
    Jan 15, 2016
    As of 2016, are Illinois Drivers Licenses in compliance with The TSA and Homeland Security for domestic airline flights?


    Yes, they are still valid the TSA has said they will give the public at least 120 days notice and a firm date when they will stop accepting them. It is likely this will never actually occur.




  • baggage and security question
    Jan 1, 2015
    If I am flying from Maui to Honolulu and then onto San Francisco. It is a separate reservation. Do I need to go through security again in Honolulu and recheck my bags?


    What airlines are you flying?


    Hawaiian Airlines


    Then you don't have to do anything with your bags. You have to go from the interisland terminal to the main terminal and through security.
