No hoops to jump - what makes you think otherwise ?
Thanks for the reply. First time flying from city to city within Europe. I wasn’t sure if I needed to go through passport control before leaving Dublin. I assume that I will when I arrive in Paris. I have seen some posts that indicate 3 hours before your flight in Dublin...that must be just for returning to the USA?
You seem confused. It's much easier than you think.Edited: 19 October 2017, 14:09
Just to clarify and at the risk of confusing you more, you don't clear Immigration on leaving a country. If you were flying Ireland - direct non stop to the US you would do Pre-Clearance at either Dublin or Shannon Airport for which indeed we suggest 3 hours.
European flights we recommend at least 2 hours - more if flying on a non EU Passport with Ryanair for document checks but this does not apply to you .Edited: 19 October 2017, 14:16
Thanks for your kind reply. Things are always easier once you’ve done it :)
2 hours sounds so much better! I’ll get the hang of all this with a few more trips under my belt. Thanks
#4: " I wasn’t sure if I needed to go through passport control before leaving Dublin."
#7: "Just to clarify and at the risk of confusing you more, you don't clear Immigration on leaving a country."
Actually #7 is risking confusing OP more because yes, you often do immigration/passport control on leaving a country. Many, perhaps even most, countries (including all Schengen Area countries) have a formal exit check by an immigration officer when you leave the country.
Edit: And note, I know Irelend is not in the Schengen Area, the comment is meant to say that OP's question about possible exit checks is not an unreasonable one, given how widespread the practice is.Edited: 19 October 2017, 14:41
