Re: outbound clearance leaving the US

I think as a non US citizen, you'd better clear out.

Re: outbound clearance leaving the US

I agree with the other responders regarding foreign citizenship and US ownership. The mis-match is a recipe for detention and/or fines in various countries. State registration is not universally recognized especially beyond the Caribbean. Can you register in the country of your citizenship? Check out registering/documenting in the British Virgin Islands or Caymen Islands or Marshals etc. This is generally used to legally avoid US and state taxes on the purchase of a vessel but may be the best way to build coherant papers considering your complications. You might need to hire a specialty firm to do this but I think you can do it yourself if you are resourcefull. It seems to be complcated and expensive to follow this plan. Is it possible to become US citizens? This may be easier. Here are a few links I found on a brief search.

Re: outbound clearance leaving the US

Ok I think it's clear that foreign nationals need to clear with immigration prior to departing from the USA. How about a foreign national with residence (green card holder) in the US?

Re: outbound clearance leaving the US

I believe green card holders need a re-entry permit
