How To Save 2 Hours On Your US Flights

Experience hassle-free travel to the US with the US Preclearance facility at Dublin Airport's Terminal 2. This purpose-built facility allows passengers to complete all necessary immigration, customs, and agriculture inspections before departure.
As one of the few airports outside North America to offer this service, Dublin Airport provides a unique advantage. By clearing USCBP at the airport, passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, bypassing immigration queues and swiftly collecting their baggage.
Not only does this benefit passengers traveling to the US, but it also benefits those connecting onward to their final destinations. Baggage is checked through, eliminating the need for additional inspections and providing a seamless travel experience.
To ensure a smooth journey, we recommend arriving at your terminal at least 3 hours before your long-haul flight. For those checking bags or traveling in a group, please allow extra time. Consult your airline for check-in desk and bag drop opening hours.

Please note that during peak periods, the airport can be very busy. To avoid any inconvenience, give yourself ample time to check-in, go through security screening, and complete the US Preclearance process before your flight. USA flights depart from Terminal 2. Currently, peak times for security screening at Terminal 2 are from 05:00 to 12:00 for morning and early afternoon flights.
