Southern spoken here
Be prepared for friendly people who like to smile at and talk to strangers. You won't be a stranger long in Birmingham! We chat it up with everyone. You will find that everyone will bend over backwards to give directions, advice or just "visit" as we say. Visitors to our city often comment on our southern hospitality. It's alive and well in Birmingham.
Attention foreign visitors
Please note that entering or leaving the US is an issue of severe controls.
A few questions of the security officers at the airport of departure - a severe radar control at arrival - put your shoes in the luggage box as well - fingerprints and a photo of your smiling face at the entrance of the US - those prints and picture must match whenever leaving this state of bees and honey.
Slogan : Keep America's doors open and their Nation secure. I think they are right.
PS : This picture is not the official in/out immigration pass through - so please do not duplicate - it has no sense
