Bozeman, Mont.- U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announces they will start clearing passengers arriving on private and charter aircraft from foreign locations on July 1 at Bozeman-Yellowstone International Airport (BZN).
CBP hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays through Mondays.
Bozeman-Yellowstone International Airport is designated as a user fee airport and the pilot of an aircraft arriving from a foreign port must submit an electronic manifest and notice of arrival through the Advance Passenger Information System (APIS). It is recommended pilots planning to fly into the U.S. from Canada or other countries review the information found on the cbp.gov web-site.
Because airports have different operational hours and different requirements, pilots should contact the CBP office at the airport of arrival directly to better understand and confirm local operating procedures and requirements that may affect the flight. The telephone number for the CBP office at Bozeman-Yellowstone International Airport is (406) 388-2144.
APIS enhances border security by providing officers with pre-arrival and departure manifest data on all passengers and crew members.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry.
