You don't have a choice in this case - you HAVE TO go through immigration at JFK(that is your first point of entry in USA). There is a ATM on the first floor of T1, but it is not a bad idea to have a cash , just in case.
It is very easy to transfer from T1 to T2 - just exit the building and walk to your right - T2 is the very next building(5 min walk).
Since you are new immigrant make sure you have enough time between the two flights. For you, the immigration procedures may take up to 3-4 hours.

Thank you so much for your help & efforts.well I have an overnight flight,i`ll be in JFK T1 @ 7.15 PM & i`ll leave from T2 the next day @ 7.15 AM,so I have plenty of time for the immigration.I have one more interesting question if you dont mind....will the immigration officers take the closed packet the US embassy gave me or I give it to SFO immigration?or what exactly?thanks lots in advance.have a nice day

My parents are at Terminal 1 for a departing flight and it is closed. Is there a problem that we don't know about?

bomb scare

Sky News, AFP and CNN News reporting that there is a bomb evacuation going on right now at JFK

I am coming from Istanbul,Turkey with Turkish Airlines and I have a connection flight to Norfolk with Delta Airlines.
What is the best way to get to Terminal 3 from Terminal 1?
Do I have to carry my luggages by myself (from Terminal 1 to 3) OR after I go through customs in Terminal 1, does DELTA staff take AND send them to Terminal 3 ?
Thank you in advance

You can walk from T1 to T2(it is also Delta building).
You can have Turkish Airlines transfer your bags over to Delta. Do that right after you pass the customs at T1 - there is connecting flights counter as you exit , to your right.

I have a flight on Cayman Airways from the Cayman Islands and then will take a flight to upstate New York on JetBlue. Will my bags automatically transfer or will I have to pick them up before I change terminals? Thanks!

Jet Blue does not have a baggage agreement with Cayman Airways so you have to collect your bags and check them in at Jet Blue Terminal.

My mom is travelling from India thru Paris/JFK to Seattle, WA on Air France and Delta. She is coming into JFK on AF 12 that arrives at Terminal 1 at 12:45 pm and leaves to Seattle on DL 1843 at 4:20 pm from Terminal 3. Since she has to clear customs in JFK can she check her bags back in for onward journey at Terminal 1 after customs - like at a connection counter so that she doesn't have to lug it around all the way to Terminal 3. She is going to get wheelchair assistance from the airline (has a fractured heel) - will they take her from customs to Terminal 3 and also make sure her bags are transferred for her connecting domestic flight ?

She can transfer her bags after she pass US customs at Air France Connecting flights counter. The wheelchair assistant have to bring her to Delta check-in counters where she can ask Delta for their wheelchair assistance.

My mother is flying in on Aeroflot to T1 and only has 1hr50 min to go through customes/luggage and get to T3 on Delta flight to CVG. Will she have enough time? Can I arrange for some kind of assistance? Would she be able to walk over to T3 or only Airtran is available, if walking how long? outside or inside walking?

Hopefully her Aeroflot flight is not late. And she has her boarding pass from Aeroflot for the flight to CVG. Let her transfer her bags at Aeroflot Connecting flights counter at T1 right after she passes the customs.
It is very convenient to check-in at T2 for any Delta flight - the terminal is within walking distance(3-5 min, outside) from Terminal 1.

Hello, my mother is flying in from Russia into Terminal 1 and then has to go to Terminal 3 to catch a flight to CVG in 1.50min. Is that enough time to go through customs, get the luggage and etc??? Also how do you get from Terminal 1 to 3: walking (how long? outside or inside)/airtain? or other ways?

I have a flight on delta arriving at 2:45pm and an outbound
flight on Turkish Airlines at 4:45pm, just 2 hours. Will this
be enough time to make this connection? Will I have to recheck
baggage or go through a security screening at JFK?

Thank you
