Boat Customs Clearance

WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


Customs clearance in boating terms can be defined as a process for meeting federal requirements when bringing boats into the United States from a foreign destination. This applies to boats that are being imported and those entering for shipping, transportation, or cruising purposes.

Meaning


The Customs Border Protection (CBP) service is responsible for the administration and enforcement of customs clearance matters in the United States. Clearance for importation purposes will typically involve the collection of duties and taxes.

Context


Customs clearance for recreational cruising purposes is typically a matter of checking in at the appropriate point of entry. Importing a boat is, however, a more complicated process which involves a considerable amount of paperwork and the submission of fees. In these cases, a licensed import broker is usually employed to handle the necessary procedures.

Conclusion


Customs clearance, whether for import or cruising purposes, can have serious repercussions if handled improperly. Boaters should seek professional assistance with any such concerns.
