I have 1hour and 55 minutes incoming from Germany gate A to connecting fly to CMH gate F.
Are there passport controll kiosks for german travelers with valid esta authorisation or is it faster to wait in line for an officer to controll my passport?
What is faster walking or taking the shuttle from gate A to F, and where do I find the shuttle?
Is 1hour and 55 time enough for all this?
Are you a repeat ESTA user or a first time? If this is your first time entering the US on ESTA you have to wait to see an agent. The shuttle is inside security in A. It's well marked. You should have enough time.
Thank you for your help. It's not the first time I travel to the USA with esta. Is it faster to use the kiosk or to see an agent?
Do to change of plans, I am traveling alone with my senior parents.. We have an hour between landing and departing. Is there a way to arrange for skycab or someone to meet the flight with a wheelchair to help us hurry and make the connection?
I am arriving from Lisbon at 03:25 PM, Terminal A, connecting to MIA on terminal B at 6:00 PM, all with AA. Is it enough to clear customs? I don't know if I have to recheck the baggage. 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, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
