Unique Facilities

US Pre-Clearance At Dublin Airport

The United States Pre-Clearance facility in Dublin Airport is a purpose built facility that allows US bound passengers to undertake all immigration, customs and agriculture inspections at Dublin prior to departure. US Pre-Clearance facilities are unique to Ireland within Europe.

Having cleared immigration and customs at Dublin, passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals. There are a number of benefits associated with using US Pre-Clearance at Dublin:

•   Allows US bound passengers to clear immigration and customs at Dublin before departure which reduce the arrival processing time in the US.

•   Airlines can offer passengers easily accessible onward connections as passengers making connections have their baggage checked through to their final destination and have already cleared immigration and customs. This reduces the minimum connection time by effectively offering a domestic-to-domestic connection.

•   Airlines flying to the US will now be able to fly into less congested and less expensive domestic terminals on arrival at US gateway airports.

•   The costs associated with repatriation of refused passengers are curtailed for airlines by having an on-site CBP facility.
