Travelling to the USA through Dublin Airport? Flight Connection Made Easy!

Are you traveling to the US?

If so, the US Preclearance (USCBP) facility at Terminal 2 in Dublin Airport is a purpose built facility that allows US bound passengers to undertake all Immigration, Customs and Agriculture inspections at Dublin Airport prior to departure.

Dublin Airport is one of only a handful of airports outside North America that offers a US Preclearance facility. Having cleared USCBP, passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, allowing them to avoid immigration queues upon arrival and pick up their bags and go.

In addition, this benefits onward connecting passengers in the US who will have their baggage checked through to their final destination.
