I will soon travel to the US for the first time.
I am not a US citizen, but I will travel together with one.
We will land in ATL and then proceed to a connecting flight. I know I will have to clear customs in ATL.
My ESTA application has been approved, but I read that since I never have travelled to the US before, I will have to clear immigration through a old-fashioned booth with a immigration officer, and I won't be able to use the electronic kiosks.
As my travel companion is a citizen, they'll not be subject to this restriction.
What is the best course of action? Should they queue with me, or should we proceed our separate ways?
I'd like to proceed together, but I don't know if it is allowed.
