we are only flying into SFO in June, but would like to know what the average time it takes to collect baggage and clear through customs. Also what is the best way to get into the centre of SFO - Union Square?
The best way to get there is BART. Immigration and customs will take 30-60 minutes.
Customs and Immigration at SFO opens at 6am. United 955 from Tel Aviv usually arrives an hour or more early (4:45ish). Will passengers have to wait in the plane for customs & immigration to open? Even those with Global Entry?
Yes, they will have to wait until US Immigration and Customs opens. Global entry passengers still have to go through Customs.
