    What does a "PG" mean here? Personal guest maybe? – Zach Lipton May 25 '19 at 0:28

    What is your nationality? Are you travelling under the VWP or with a visa? – jcaron May 25 '19 at 11:25

The US does not care whether you stay in a hotel or with a family. They only care that you will conform to the conditions of your visa and depart the country. All you need to do is to put the address where you will stay in the US on the landing card (which for US preclearance you fill out at Abu Dhabi before going into preclearance). If you will stay at multiple places in the US, use the address where you will stay the first night.

  • Thank You very much. In simple words, the CBP Officer will not call the Hotel to check you booking.. right ? – Azeez Hussain May 26 '19 at 7:11
