United: ewr - dub (via BHX)

Can anyone tell me if I will have to clear Immigration / Customs in BHX on arrival from EWR en route to Dublin? All on one ticket (see, I have learned stuff on here !) 1hr 55mins layover - significantly cheaper and better times for me. Not familiar with the Common Travel Area agreement.

Yes - because of the Common Travel Area

Immigration yes, Customs no.

You clear immigration into the Common Travel Area at BHX. But your bags are checked through to DUB and you clear Customs there.

It certainly should be,if your incoming is on time especially at that time of the morning as it does not clash with the flights from the sub continent which can cause immigration delays.

You should be through in 10mins.
