What day is displayed on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's travel history for each departure and arrival? Is it when the flight actually took off, the flight was scheduled to take off, or when passing the security, etc.?

    It's certainly not when you pass security, because they don't record that, and because it's possible to pass security and then not board the plane. – phoog Oct 6 at 14:12

    I am sure you've already asked this question. The related one for "arrival" still exists. Please do not delete and re-post questions just because you didn't get the answer you wanted. – Greg Hewgill Oct 6 at 20:03

    Fair enough, I suppose questions also get deleted automatically for attracting downvotes and no answers. That's an even worse reason to re-post the question, as it looks like it's just going to get voted down again. For those with enough rep to see it, here's the previous community-deleted question: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/159077/… – Greg Hewgill Oct 6 at 20:10

    I assume there is no single answers (different possibilities, on different time, places, etc.). And I think it doesn't matter much, but if you are near the limit dates, keeps the documentation: e.g. late flight, but also all reasonable cause that caused you to depart few day later [cancelled flights, police detection, health, etc.] – Giacomo Catenazzi Oct 7 at 9:53

While we don't know yet the exact answer, the following comment from phoog drastically reduce the time window:

It's certainly not when you pass security, because they don't record that, and because it's possible to pass security and then not board the plane. – phoog Oct 6 at 14:12

This means the day is displayed on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's travel history for each departure is either when the flight actually took off, or when the flight was scheduled to take off or close to that time (e.g., entering plane).

  • This is not really an answer. A guess posted as a comment because there is no knowledge (yet) and in my view not worth accepting at all. (I am not going to delete as not an answer as improvements can make it in something acceptable.) – Willeke Oct 17 at 22:08
  • @Willeke It's definitely not written as a guess ("It's certainly not when you pass security, because they don't record that"). How do you suggest to improve? – Franck Dernoncourt Oct 17 at 22:20
  • Wait till someone (maybe yourself) actually knows the answer. (Yes, waiting for that answer would mean that this question gets closed but that is the way of the site.) – Willeke Oct 18 at 10:00
  • @Willeke I don't understand if your issue is that phoog does indicate the precise time or that you think that phoog is making a guess. – Franck Dernoncourt Oct 18 at 17:50
