The wait times are crazy long in the US and looks like JFK is the worst. Every time we go through customs in LAX it takes us 45 minutes to 1 hour on average. It is much shorter in foreign countries than the US from my experience. In Paris France it was less than 5 minutes and that was with my wife’s Chinese passport and visa to enter France. In China it is short just enough to stamp your passport and that’s it. I feel like an unwanted citizen when I go through US customs and the process is so long and normally my suitcases are on the baggage claim conveyors long before passing through customs.
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
