Default North America Travel Queries

2 Questions here:

I'm connecting through Dublin, my flight lands at 09:30 and my US bound departure takes off at 11:30, is that enough time to get through security clearance?

Also, I have my ESTA already, but I'll be going from the US to Canada and back again, do I need any ESTA equivalent for Canada? Will coming back from Canada to the States be a pain in the ass?

Where is your flight in to Dublin from?

Is it domestic? And which terminal is it?

Can be some horrible queues going through passport control this time of year in Dublin.

Also your ESTA should be fine, I went in via Mexico a few years back and it was grand.

Cheers Eoin, do I need any ESTA equivalent for Canada?

I'll be flying Edinburgh to Dublin with Aer Lingus, so the bags will go through automatically, same terminal too so it should allow me to get to the checks handily enough.

You'll be tight, just go straight to your gate and then if your flight is getting close to closing they'll let you skip the queue.

NOt sure about ESTA for Canada, haven't been since 2003.

Given the shite Guinness here it would be remiss of me not to stop for one!
Though I'm back on Leeside next weekend and will be lashing into the Murphy's, the Guinness will be tainted for me.

Spoke to a guy in work here who went the same route about 3 weeks back he was saying, he was saying a delay in leaving Edinburgh worked in his favour as they were waiting for all connecting passengers at the arrival gate and sent them all through sharpish.

There's no US pre-clearance in Heathrow.
