Clearing in Key West from Cuba

Hi forum friends!

Does anyone know or have personal experience with clearing in to the States in Key West after visiting Cuba?
The boat (and crew) are foreign (not US flagged).
The last report on Noonsite is from May 2012 and says that there were some problems at that time.

Thanks!
Ron

Theoretically, all foreign should be possible. You never know if the inspecting agent may choose to make thing difficult. Sorry, I can't offer real help. I would have sent you to noonsite.

You might look on the .gov sites for the US and print off the pertinent pages. Also, if you have an embassy, see what advice they can offer. It may make everything easier if your homework is done before you arrive.

Re: Clearing in Key West from Cuba

Ive only read on here and other sites that Key West can be a lot harder to ck into, then other places in FLA. We ckd back in down here in Louisiana with no problems after being in Cuba for repairs! We had no problems here ! But folks from other countrys should never have a problem cking in, but should sometimes turns into now with the way things have turned into since 9-11! To bad it's this way, but we all have to live with it here in the USA! It's gotten so it's much easier to ck in in other countrys then it is here even for us citizens !! Ya might be happier if ya ck in in someother place then Key West ! Just our 2 cents
