Does a Guernsey/UK registered boat need a FCC radio license to enter the US?

Hello!

Trying to navigate the details of bringing a Foreign Registered / US Owned boat into the US (USVI, Puerto Rico, Florida) and it may be a bit overwhelming...

Can you share your takes and experience on some points:

Does a Non-US registered / US-owned boat need an FCC fixed radio station and restricted operator license to enter the US? or to leave the US?

Other than the form i-1300 and i-418 to enter USVI, any other procedure must be done on the CBP side?

For Border Patrol, what would be required?

As USVI has 0% Sales and Use tax, do you still need to file any documents?

Thank you in advance.

Nuno

The ship radio station license must be done in the jurisdiction of the ship registry - in your case with your boat registered on the British Ship Registry you must register your ship radio station with OFCOM UK.

The radio operator license can be from any jurisdiction - the boat is not you and you are not the boat.
