Travelling from Scotland U.K. Passport is there separate border control for us as we are travelling united airlines and catching connecting flight to Las Vegas arriving terminal b connecting united flight terminal c 2 hrs 10 mins later
Repeat users of ESTA are allowed to use the Kiosks that US and Canadian citizens use. If you are a first-time ESTA user you have to wait in the line that people entering on a visa use. You should have enough time.
there is one terminal at Newark that i remember is always the most difficult to pick up a passenger from - the ramp goes down and there's a ton of cars and a traffic light before you reach the arrivals doors - is it A or C?
C is a much newer terminal than A - does that help?
it doesn't really answer my question, but thanks for commenting.
Hi everybody, I have my parents coming from Milan Malpensa to Chicago, connecting through Newark with 1 hour 30 minutes time. Will this layover time enough for connection? Both flights are United and looks like they are landing/taking off on Terminal C. Will my parents have to collect baggages, re-check them and also go again through security control? Thanks everybody for any reply and Merry Christmas! Diego
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If they miss their connection, United flies hourly flights from Newark to Chicago.
Thanks Zap, how about baggages collection, re-check and security control? Do they have to do that? Thanks again!
Yes, in Newark they will have to go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to their departure gate.
Does anyone know if you need to go the security again when arriving on a domestic and leaving on an international flight?
What airlines are you flying? Where are you flying from and going to?
is 2hr 10mins enough time arriving from a flight from edinburgh going to Toronto?,
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello
I am travelling from Belfast Northern Ireland via Newark and onward to Toronto Ontario. Both flights with united. Do I have to collect my bags or will they be sent right through. Also will the us visa I applied for when leaving be accepted on my return or do I have to reapply?
Great informative site. Thank you
Yes, in Newark you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, possibly change terminals, then go through security and to your departure gate. If you have a multiple-entry visa then it will be accepted on the return.
Hi is 2 hours enough to transit arriving from the uk on united and then flying on to costa rica on united. wasn't sure if needed to clear customs etc?
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security but you don't have to claim and re-check your bags.
Hello, I will have a 1h 55m layover in EWR. I will arrive from Austin with United Airlines and then need to go to Terminal B, and check in for my flight with El-Al to Israel. Will I have enough time?
With checked bags it will be very difficult for you to make it to the El Al check in desk before the cutoff.
I see, and without checked bags it is reasonable?
Without checked bags it is barely possible if everything goes perfectly.
Hi All,
My family will be travelling from Mumbai to Newark and arrive at Terminal C. Their next flight is also from Terminal C to Memphis. We have 2 kids (7 and 1.5 year old). Will they have to claim their baggage at Newark or will it reach directly to Memphis? Since both the arriving and departure terminal are same do they have to take any train or any other commute? Please help.
Yes, in Newark they will go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk. The flight to Memphis may depart from Terminal C or A. If it departs from A they will take the AirTrain to Terminal A. Then go through security and to their departure gate.
Thanks for the quick response. As per the tickets it is mentioned as Terminal C for Memphis flight so hopefully there will not be any AirTrain commute. Just in case they change it to Terminal A: re-check baggage needs to be done at Terminal A or can it be done in C?
Re-check will be done at a special desk right after you clear customs in C. Don't trust the terminals listed on those reservations - be sure to check the monitors or United.com when you arrive in Newark for the actual departure gate.
My husband and I will be traveling from MAN and have a 3 hour layover in EWR. How does customs work and will we have enough time? Our airline is Lufthansa but operated by united.
In Newark you will arrive in Terminal B or C, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. You will depart from Terminal A or C. If you arrived at a different terminal than where you depart, you will then take the AirTrain to your departure terminal and go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time.
