Immigration, Customs, and Boarding for International Travel to the U.S.A.

Immigration

Stand in line for the Immigration Check. Proceed when they call you. In some countries, this is handled by police officers. Proceed immediately when they call you and keep your handbag near you. They will check your passport and ask questions about your journey and its purpose. After this, ask at the counter where to go next.

Customs

Next, go to the Customs Check. They will ask you if you have anything to declare. Normally, you won’t have anything to declare: just clothes and personal belongings. Then, ask at the counter where to go next. Many times, the immigration and customs counter are the same where the formalities are done together.

Boarding

Proceed toward the gate number they gave you when you checked in. The gate number is also on the boarding pass. Often, all gates will be on the lower level.

You might end up with time on your hands. There are places to sit and shops to browse.

Next, go to the Security Check. Here, they will scan every person (men and women separately) and X-ray hand baggage. Next, you will wait in the hall for the boarding announcement.

Normally they seat people in the following order: handicapped, first class, business class, last rows, middle rows, and front rows. Keep your boarding pass ready and enter the plane. The flight attendant may help you locate your seat; if not, ask them. Put your hand-baggage in an overhead compartment or under your seat. There will be blankets on each seat. If they are not there, ask the flight attendant for one.
