Flying from India to the US - Tips for First Time Travelers

Tips for international travel from India to the USA
Going onsite soon? Have you traveled outside India before? 

For many, going to the U.S.A. for work or business is not only the first flight they will ever board, but the first time many will board an international flight and experience life outside of India! 

Believe it or not, I have that in common with you! The first flight I ever boarded was when I went to India for the first time! Since that first overseas flight to India many years ago, I have traveled back and forth to India almost 15 times, with two long-term stays (2 and 5 years). 

This post is not about me, however, it's about how to prepare you for your first international flight to the U.S.A.! Are you excited? Nervous? Worried about what to pack or not pack? Wondering what it's like to go through immigration? 

Well, take a few minutes to see the video below- a guide for those boarding flights in India heading to America. It's a very handy tutorial on the process of boarding a flight and tips on entering the US. Feel free to share your feedback or comments below in the comments section for others to learn from your experiences.
