Questions asked by CBP

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow Fodorites! Yesterday my mom, sister and I flew back from Greece. The time we had there was great! Anyways, very long haul flight (11 hours) from Athens to Philadelphia (not our final stop). Now, it's been a couple of years since I've flown international and I guess my memory is getting a bit fuzzy, but when going to the Customs & Border Patrol officer so he / she can stamp your passport, is it standard procedure for them to ask what you do in terms of a job? I don't know if it was me feeling tired, the fact that the CBP guy had a really pp attitude or a combination of both, but I felt slightly annoyed at being asked what I do in terms of a job and how long I'd been doing it. Can anyone shed some light on this or have you had the same experience?
