Advance Passenger Information

The U.S. Government requires carriers to collect Advance Passenger Information for passengers prior to travel.
Customer's Information is collected at the time of check-in on the date of departure by swiping your passport through a reader and sent to the Customs and Immigration Authorities.

New laws require ANA to collect additional Advance Passenger Information that is not held in your passport. If you travel to the USA, your address in the USA, country of residence and alien registration number (Green Card number, where applicable) are to be sent.

In order to check-in at the airport smoothly, we ask you to provide address in the USA and country of residence when you book your flight or purchase your ticket.
In case that you book your flight through ANA SKY WEB, you can enter your address in the USA and country of residence from "View Reservations" page, or contact our Reservations and Information Center when the information is fixed.
