Non-ABI/Manual Entry Summary

Non-ABI/Manual Entry Summary

  • Manual Entry Summaries are not transmitted via ABI, however they are accepted into ACE.
  • Entry Summary document and timeliness requirements are the same with Non-ABI Entry Summaries as they are with any other Entry Summary.
  • When CBP reviews the entry documents for compliance and releases a manual entry summary, the invoice is returned to the filer, and that invoice serves as the release notification to Non-ABI filers.  This usually occurs when documents are presented in person.
  • If entry documents are submitted electronically to CBP, an electronic notification of the release is sufficient.
  • Non-ABI entries must be paid via single pay, they are not allowed on statements.

Non-ABI/Manual Entry Summary (Lineless)

  • Non-ABI/Manual Entry Summary lineless processing has the same entry document and timeliness requirements as any other Entry Summary.  However, the only data CBP inputs into ACE is the header data.
  • All ports may use lineless Non-ABI Entry Summary input for the following entry types: 01, 04, 05, 08, and 11 (consolidated) transactions only, 21, 22, 24, 25, and 31.
