People need to stop worrying or getting ďstressedĒ which is an overused word now, about things you have no control over.
Worrying or stressing about it doesnít make it go away, just wastes your mental time.

Well we arenít stressed. It will be what it will be, and if the little one cries he cries! He will soon get over it! If the officer gives us dirty looks like last time, so be it! We have no control over the queues and in this specific instance no control over an upset tired bewildered three year old struggling with an early start, a 9-10 hour flight and missing his bedtime plus a five hour time difference and no ability to make him more comfortable. If the queue is short itís a bonus and anything else we will live with!The alternative is we donít go until they are older. Sadly as Iíll also be older then thatís not the option we have chosen!

Just wondering what people tend to bring/do to pass the hours in the queue? I know phones/tablets not allowed, but maybe a good book?

Interesting - I don't think I've ever seen anyone talking in the immigration hall, ever. It's always been silent, serious, and full of weary faces. Maybe I've been on the wrong flights 😂

We always have had folks to talk to. I really donít get why people are weary ( or tired) . Me? Iíve been sitting quietly on a plane, watching a couple films, possibly have a couple hours sleep etc, so Iím far more rested than a normal , at home day. Is there something that sitting on a plane doing next to nothing makes people tired and irritable?

I travelled a lot during my working years, sometimes going straight into work after a twelve hour flight or similar, so maybe Iím used to it and can switch off on the plane, I donít know. I just know Iím fine when I get off.

We are the 76 year old couple directed to wait at desk 23 behind a party of 8 who are all rummaging in their cabin bags to find their passports.

But we're just happy to be back.

Like I posted earlier, youíll hopefully get sent to terminal C soon.

There are things you can do, get the earlier plane if you can, move your ass through the airport if possible.

My son is profoundly Autistic, luckily we always get moved through quickly, if he gets distressed it would take him a couple of days before he was ok and he would then be stressing about returning.

Absolutely true, but I also bear in mind that whatever the circumstances people must feel they are surmountable, otherwise they would likely not undertake a 9 hour flight with possibly a queue at departure and arrival.

This - Our immigration queue usually consists of huffing and puffing, and sighing from everybody! 😂
