How to I file my Advance Notice of Arrival (ANOA)?
If you are operating a foreign commercial or recreational vessel or U.S. commercial vessel 300 GT or less, you must file an ANOA with the appropriate Captain
of the Port (COTP). After downloading and completing the ANOA form, it must be faxed to the COTP. This ANOA can be either completed online or via an electronic form that can be emailed to the NVMC at sans@[EMAIL PROTECTED] . To complete an online ANOA or to download the ANOA form, visit
Instructions for utilizing the online service
are included in the attached ANOA brochure. The NVMC can also be contacted at (800) 708-9823.
If your cruise
duration is 96 hours or greater, the appropriate authorities must be notified as soon as practicable but at least 24 hours before entering the port.
If your cruise
duration is less than 96 hours and greater than 24 hours, the appropriate authorities must be notified as soon as practicable but at least 24 hours before entering the port.
If your cruise duration is less than 24 hours, the appropriate authorities must be notified as soon as practicable but at least 12 hours before entering the port.
It is also recommended that recreational boaters emphasize in their ANOA that they will
be following the reported trip itinerary, weather
permitting. In the event that weather
conditions prevent boaters from adhering to their proposed schedule, they should notify the appropriate authority within the time limits specified above. Changes to you estimated time of arrival that are less than 6 hours do not need to be reported.
If you filed your ANOA online with the NVMC, you must email
your itinerary changes. If you filed your ANOA with the COTP, you must either call the COTP to notify them of your changes or fax a revised ANOA.
