Mixed Crew ?

So call me a prude, but I've never voyaged internationally with other than a 100% USA crew. My S/O and I are planning some island hoping this summer and (GASP!) she is Canadian! She has permanent resident status in the US (Green Card)... Do we clear in and out as I have in the past with a single nationality crew or does mixed nationality complicate things?

Any fool with a big enough checkbook can BUY a boat; it takes a SPECIAL type of fool to build his own! -Capngeo

we have this problem all the time,most europeans can fly in and leave usa by yacht on a reciprical tourist visa,but if entering again by yacht would need a full b1b2 visa.
as arriving by non commercial carrier.
but would think dept of home land security can give you a better answer,helpful as long as you follow the rules.
also cant see why you should have a problem for a green card holder.

out side usa juristriction you all need to check in and out irrespective of nationality.
though it helps not to have a third world passport.............may find a canadian can actually go to more places without a visa than you can on a us passport.
happy sailings

On occasion there may be different visa requirements for US v. Canadian. Make sure you do a bit of research before you decide to pop into that next foreign port!

And some visa fees are a LOT more expensive for Canadians ...

When I saw the thread title, I thought "mixed" meant race or sexual orientation or something ...
