Hey gang - hope everyone is good!

I am flying home for x-mas (yey!) from BA, to London via New York, and I am bringing my porteņa girlfriend with me.

Anyone have any ideas about what she will need to get into London, and if she needs anything for the 3 hour wait we have at JFK airport in NY?
Thanks

Adam

If she is flighting to London , she will be in a control area in flight .. no worries.... once in London now, immigration there is the question.. By Engish law.

Hey guys...Adam, I believe it depends on how long your layover in New York will be...anything more than a couple of hours requires a visa due to the cacellation of the TWOV (travelling without visa) program a few years ago...cheque with the US Government website to find out for sure.

Heathrow has a control area for connecting flights just as JFK has ... strictly for connecting with entering their country.. Your thoughs should be with immigration law in Enland for her..

Call the airline, they will know exactly what their proceedure is for layovers and what the US requires. It is their job to know that before they schedule the flight.

This is great info, thanks.

On the UK Immigrations point - surely there are foreign people visiting the UK on holiday all the time! What do they do for a 2 week holiday? Get a Visa?

I'll try the AirLine, it's a good starting point.

Thanks again - please keep sending any further thoughts!

Yeah, good luck. My friend Adam and his Brazilian girlfriend were suppose to go to London through NY and she got turned down for her visa a few weeks before they were suppose to leave. She ended up having to take a different flight and had to pay the huge fees to move the ticket around.
