Boat Port of Entry

WikiTagsWikiShare


BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


A port of entry in boating terms is a harbor or marina with an office that can facilitate a U.S. Customs clearance for boats arriving in the United States. These are located strategically throughout most coastal regions.

Meaning


Any person or object entering the United States from a foreign destination must go through a clearance process with the Customs Border Protection (CBP) service. This applies whether by land, air, or sea.

Context


The entry of boats into the United States is of particular interest to the CBP given their value and potential for movement of contraband. This applies to both recreational and commercial boats.

Conclusion


Customs clearance whether for travel or trade must be taken very seriously. Heavy fines, forfeitures, impoundments can result from such violations.
