  • Exit Airport without a USA Visa???
    Oct 10, 2015
    Hi, My girlfriend will be traveling through the USA and EWR airport as a transit passenger. She holds an Indonesian passport, and will be traveling to Bermuda. No visa is required for entry into Bermuda. Layover will be 12-14 hours. Will she be allowed to leave the airport and go to a hotel? Is there a transit hotel in the airport? Thanks in advance!


    As an Indonesian citizen she needs a US Transit visa in order to transit the US.

  • Coming from Geneva and changing plane in Newark
    Aug 31, 2015
    Hi, I'm coming from Geneva and I'm going to Toronto but m transit is in Newark. I have 2 and a half hours in EWR. Do I have to recheck my lugagge between Terminal C and Terminal A ? Will I have enough time ? Thanks for your help.


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal A and go through security. You should have enough time.

    Hi, I'm traveling from ATL to EWR (on United) .. and then EWR to MUM (India) on Air India ... bought as 1 ticket. Am asking for wheelchair assistance. Have 2 Checked Bags. Will I be required to claim my bags at EWR and re-check? Will I have to take Train/Monorail to get from Terminal C to Terminal B, or is there some internal connection/shuttle from C to B? Will I have to go through security check again at EWR?


  • UA - Mumbai Newark Atlanta - Baggage and Security TerminalC
    Aug 12, 2015
    Non US citizen travelling from Mumbai to Newark to Atlanta. Intl Arriving BOM-EWR in Terminal C United Airlines Domestic Departing EWR-ATL in Terminal C United Airlines Looks like the bags have to be picked up after immigration, clear customs and then re-checked for the domestic UA EWR-ATL ? What about security? Since its the same terminal I guess theres no need to deal with AIrTrain or Shuttles? Thanks


    Yes, you will have to go through security after you clear customs. Correct, you shouldn't have to take the AirTrain.


    Thanks ZAP - you're awesome on this forum :)

  • pittsburgh-newyark-oporto(portugal)
    Jul 30, 2015
    Hi I will travel tomorrow from pittsburgh to newark (by united) and after to oporto(portugal) (by TAP). I will do check in tomorrow in airport of pittsburgh and I would like to know two things: 1) the hold baggage goes to oporto directly or I need to pick up in newark? (my ticket is a global tickect. I only do connection in newark. so I think that I do the global check in in pittsburgh but I would like a confirmation). 2) I need to pass again in security control in newark? I am with doubts because when I arrived to newark I had 4 hours between flights and I lost the flight to pittsburgh because the immigration and security control. thank you for your help


    Assuming both tickets were purchased together on the same reservation then your baggage will be tagged through to Porto in Pittsburgh and you won't have to do anything with it in Newark. You do not have to go through Immigration in Newark, there is no Immigration when leaving the US. However, you will likely have to go through security as the TAP gates are not connected to the United Express gates inside security. I don't know what you mean by "global check"


  • Enough Time to catch connecting flight?
    Jul 28, 2015
    Flying from IDA to DEN arriving 2:50 pm B gates, United Airlines; Leaving for EWR at 3:43 pm B gate United Airlines; do I have to go through TSA? Is there enough time?


    No, you do not have to go through security in Denver. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time


  • Baggage assistance due to injury on vacation
    Jul 21, 2015
    I am flying from the UK to LA with transfer at Newark however I suffered a spinal injury during my vacation and as I am traveling alone with two young children I requested assistance retrieving my baggage And rechecking it for the second flight - I was told by United this was not possible and my children would have to transport the bags for us (they are 6 and 8, it is not possible for them to transport or lift 6 bags). Is there any way the bags can be retrieved from the baggage collection or will I have to leave them at Newark and arrange for them to be sent on to LAX? Many thanks


    There will be carts in the baggage claim area. You can ask other passengers or perhaps your 8 year old to lift the bags off the belt and onto the carts. Your 6 and 8 year old should then be able to push the cart.

    I have just 40 min between domestic flight (united airlines) and International flight.I should go from Terminal A to Terminal C. Do I have enough time and what is the best connection Airtrain or shuttle?


    Take the shuttle. You'll have to hope your flight from Des Moines is on-time in order to make your connection.


  • Lost Baggage
    Jun 20, 2015
    I have luggage that I have been told is sitting in Newark for 3 days now, United is not helping at all. Is there a phone # I can call to talk to the baggage desk directly so this baggage can get forwarded! In England for 3 days now without even a change of underwear! Already contacted Baggage trace dept and customer service but no help at all!


  • Baggage assistance
    Jun 20, 2015
    Hi. I will be travelling to newark with my young baby in a few weeks and will need assistance with my baggage when exiting the airport. Are there any porter services at newark and do I need to arrange this in advance? Thank you.


    It cannot be arranged in advance, you will have to try to find a Skycap when you arrive.


  • Transiting through EWR
    Jun 16, 2015
    I will be arriving on UA4597 from YHZ at 1656hrs, departing on UA 161 to GLA at 1935hrs. Will I have to reclaim my luggage and recheck it with UA again, and is there sufficient time for terminal transfers etc. I have never used EWR before. Many thanks


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. You will arrive in Terminal A and depart from Terminal C. There is a shuttle inside security between them. You should have enough time. You don't have to do anything with your baggage in Newark.


    Many thanks, that's a relief!

    Could u list details how to get toNYC via air train


    Take the AirTrain to its end at the Amtrak/New Jersey Transit station. Pay for your airtrain ticket to exit the airtrain. Buy a New Jersey Transit ticket to Penn station. Board the next New jersey Transit train to New York Penn Station.


  • Connecting flight through EWR
    Jun 12, 2015
    I'm traveling from mumbai (air India) and have a 5 hours transit in Newark before heading to orlando (United Airlines) (connecting flight from mumbai to orlando). I am arriving EWR at terminal B and departing to Orlando from terminal C. Do I need collect my bags to go through customs in Newark and at which terminal. After this is done am I able to leave the airport to go into the city and then return to check in and go through security for my orlando flight at terminal C? Do I need transit visa to leave the airport? how long before the departure of flight I need to report for check-in for my orlando flight (united airlines) terminal C.


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal B, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, and go through US Customs. If you purchased your tickets on the same reservation and your bags are tagged through to Orlando (MCO) you can then re-check your bags at the transfer desk. you will then be outside the secure area and free to go where ever you want. However, 5 hours really isn't enough time to do anything, considering it will already be about 45 minutes after your arrival by the time you re-check your bags. If you purchased two separate reservations you will have to bring your bags with you on the AirTrain to Terminal C to check them with United (and pay a checked bag fee). Then you will go through security and to your departure gate. You need to have your bag checked roughly one hour before your flight to Orlando. There is no separate "transit visa" you will be entering the United States in Newark. Orlando is also in the United States. Transit Visas are for people connecting in the United States between two foreign countries.
