So more than a review, this post is meant to inform. I’ll be honest, if I were to review the pre-Clearance facility, I would flat give it a -100/10. I hated it that much.

For information wise, the pre-clearance facility is an intense security procedure that passengers go through ONLY IF they are on a flight from Abu Dhabi to any city in the United States of America. In my case, I was flying to Los Angeles so I would need to use the pre-clearance facility. Basically, once you get through the pre-clearance facility, you are in a separate part of terminal 3 where you cannot go back and only US flights leave from there, which includes gates 58-61. Here is how it goes:

Hope this helps and sorry for the lack of photos, I did not want to risk getting caught for anything, given my past experience of AUH staff telling me to delete photos and videos I have taken. But otherwise,  please let me know if you ever have any questions. Onto the return flight to LAX.
