Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document announces that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will conduct a Declaration Zone test at cruise terminal facilities at participating sea ports of entry (POEs) to fulfill a regulatory declaration requirement and allow for streamlined processing. Current CBP regulations require each traveler to provide an oral or written declaration of all articles brought into the United States to a CBP officer. The test will provide arriving travelers with an alternative method to meet this requirement by allowing a demonstrative initial declaration. During the test, CBP will establish two queues for travelers entering the country to choose from: Items to Declare or No Items to Declare. Known as Declaration Zones, these queues will allow travelers entering the country to make their initial declaration simply by choosing which queue to enter. This notice describes the test, while setting forth requirements for participating in the test, the duration of the test, and how CBP will evaluate the test. This notice also invites public comment on any aspect of the test.
