Dublin Airport US Pre-clearance
Cleared for Takeoff - how Dublin Airport pre-clearance is benefitting US bound passengers
Dublin Airport is Ireland's primary airport facility and is only 15 minutes drive from the Dublin Enterprise Zone.
The US Preclearance (USCBP) facility at Terminal 2 in Dublin Airport is a purpose built facility that allows US bound passengers to undertake all US 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 Pre-clearance facility. The benefit is that 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.
