Immigration Alert: Change in Requirements for Private Aircraft Arriving and Departing the United States


On November 18, 2008, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in an effort to improve and standardize international and domestic general aviation security, published new regulations in the Federal Register that changed the requirements for private aircraft. The new regulations require advance notice of a private aircraft's arrival from a foreign country and/or departure to a foreign country and standardize the collection of travel manifests documenting all persons on board. The new process outlined in this rule change is similar to the process currently employed by commercial aircraft, as CBP seeks to standardize advance notice procedures for all CBP airports of entry in the United States.
