Who Must Report

All U.S. Citizens and aliens seeking entry to the United States must report their arrivals.

  • Masters - The master or person in charge of the boat must report their arrival to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). For the purpose of these instructions, the term "boat," means any vessel not engaged in trade or documented trade (not carrying merchandise or passengers for hire) such as pleasure boats and yachts, regardless of size. This requirement applies to all boats regardless of country of registration. Additionally, boats registered outside Canada or the U.S. must contact a local CBP office for a cruising license.
  • Aliens - All aliens (including alien crewmen) who are applicants for admission or otherwise seeking admission or readmission into the U.S. must report for inspection by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer.
  • U.S. Citizens - Persons claiming to be U.S. citizens must report to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer to establish that fact to the examining officer's satisfaction.

CBP Reporting Offsite Arrival - Mobile (ROAM)

The CBP ROAM app is a free mobile application that provides an option for pleasure boaters to report their U.S. entry to CBP via their personal smart device to satisfy reporting requirements.

Travelers using the CBP ROAM app may use the app to apply to become Verified Travelers (including existing LBO, SVRS, and I-68 numbers) and receive expedited processing on future arrivals.

Vessel masters must have the following information available:

  • Name, date of birth and citizenship of all persons on board (including passport number);
  • Name of the boat and/or boat registration number;
  • CBP user fee decal number (if 30 feet or longer);
