  • Just Curious!

    After finally getting my Greencard, my husband bought for me for Christmas a return flight to the UK, so I can spend Christmas with my family.

    Making my return flight home to the US, I flew into Cincinnatti, had to go thru US Immigration before boarding my internal flight home.

    Anyway, on previous trips as a tourist, US Immigration Officers were very strict, they asked a question and you gave them an answer.

    Well this time, when I flew in, I had my Greencard on top of my British passport, thinking OK let the interrogation begin, but I was gobsmacked, the I/O looked at my card, asked if I had stocked up on tea, and was very chatty indeed, now... was that because I'm now a resident or because they are just laid back in Cincinnatti.

    Also, a couple of people have posted threads on here saying their passport was stamped, and were answered, saying that was due to keeping a record of how many times they are coming in and out of the country, mine wasn't stamped at all.

    Just curious!!

      There has been an effort by CBP to become more "customer friendly" towards the passengers. However, this depends on where you fly in as well.

      Do you know if your passport was scanned? That is supposed to replace the stamp in most circumstances.

          The people at CVG are friendly to foreigners in large part because P&G has its HQ there and a lot of their Senior management are foreign nationals. This despite the fact that the airport itself is in Northern Kentucky, which state has more than its share of Kluckers, one of whom pulled me over a long time ago and invited me to "step out of the car, ******" to which I responded "say what?". His face turned red, his gaze went from my face to my suit jacket and my P&G badge on it, then turned green and profusely apologized; he knew if I complained he would have been toast
