International aircraft owners & pilots association’s applicable international flight procedures include:

  • CBP requires advance notice of arrival to CBP at the airport of entry. Even though flight plan notification service is available, pilots should contact CBP directly. ETA notification is the pilot's responsibility. Failure to do so violates CBP regulations and will result in a severe penalty.
  • Prior permission to land at a landing rights airport must be obtained from CBP.
  • To assure timely inspection in all states, CBP requests that all calls (advance notices of arrival), regardless of when service is required, be made during regular business hours indicated.
