Airlines remind travelers of new immigration rules

Date Posted: 2008-11-06

New immigration measures that go into effect for the United States next January 12th could spell confusion for travelers, and Hawaiian Airlines is urging all visitors to read up on the new requirements before they go.

The new rules require visitors to obtain official U.S. government travel authorization before departing Japan. Travelers must, under the Department of Homeland Security’s new policies, pre-register their plans for entering the U.S. a minimum of 72 hours prior to boarding a plane or ship to the U.S. Those who fail to do so will be denied boarding starting January 12th next year.

Hawaiian Airlines officials also are encouraging travel agents to become familiar with the new requirements, double checking with customers who’ve already booked trips and may not be aware of the new rules. The airline reminds people the new rules are not theirs, but rather, those of the American government.

Application for a U.S. Travel Authorization is free, and may be completed online. The process takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and is valid for two years for those who hold valid passports. Travel Authorizations are available at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta.
