International flight, trying to have time (just in case), family of 3, my wife and son on swedish passports (swedish nationals), myself on my American passport. As long as they have proper visas, am I able to bring them through the American customs line? I was able to in Chicago, 5 years ago. Also, with almost 2 hours, christmas season approaching when we visit, should I be able to clear all customs?
Swedes don't need a visa to visit the US. If they are entering on a long-term visa, they need to go in the visa line, not the citizen line, but if they are a repeat user of ESTA they can use the US/Canadian/Repeat ESTA line. Also, the Immigration lines at MSP are generally MUCH shorter than the ones in Chicago.
I will be flying from Iowa to Winnipeg with a half hour layover in Minneapolis. I was wondering if I need to go through customs in Minneapolis or Winnipeg. Also how far apart should I expect the gates to be.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Winnipeg. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
My mom is travelling today and she's on a visitor visa here in Canda. Does she needs a US visa for connecting flight from MSP to Edmonton Airport (6 hours lay over). We also called the Delta airline they said no as long as she will not go out of the airport.. Pls enlighten us about this and for any possible solution we can do if ever she needs a Visa.
If her nationality requires a visa to visit the US she needs a US visa to transit the US, even if she has a Canadian visitors visa. Whoever you talked to on the phone is mistaken.
Hi, I fly tomorrow from Denver to Amsterdam. There is ca. 56 minutes transfer time. 1. Is that enough? 2. Do I have to check out and in my luggage myself? 3. I'm sitting quite in the backside of the plane. Is it normally possible to get out first?
If both flights are on Delta all you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Thank you so much ZAP! Yes both flights are Delta so that would be fine. Luggage will be automatically loaded form one flight to the next?
Yes, you won't have to do anything with your bags.
We are taking a 5PM flight out of Reagan National Airport in late August to Anchorage with a 1 hour layover in MSP. Assuming the weather holds (i.e., no thunderstorms), is there sufficient time to make our connection? Does anyone know if the ANC gate is reasonably close to the gate at which we would land?
Yes, that is enough time. You can get between any two Delta gates at MSP within 15 minutes.
