Passport and customs regulations

 

The outgoing passengers must have an exit visa and a foreign passport. The incoming passengers must have an entry visa, a foreign passport and a vac- cination certificate. The visas and foreign passport are produced to the Passport Officer at the Passport Control. On board the plane the passenger is given an ar- rival card to fill in (his name in full, country of residence, permanent address, purpose and duration of visit and the address in the country he is visiting). Offi- cials examine the passport and visa (to see if they are in order). They may check the certificate of vaccination. At the Customs they examine the luggage. There is a Customs Control to inspect the aircraft, the load, the crew’s and passengers’ luggage. The passengers fill in a customs declaration form. There are customs regulations that state what articles are liable to duty and what air duty-free. Cus- toms restrictions include a prohibited articles list. It’s not obligatory for the crew members to fill in a Customs declaration. The crew members are aisled some questions about their hand luggage which is inspected on board.

ICAO Circular 152-AT155

 

It’s recommended that the checked baggage of transferring passengers should be cleared at the customs at the airport of final destination. Such clear- ance may be carried out at the time of arrival of the passengers. It’s recom- mended that necessary steps should be taken to reduce the incidence of baggage mishandling. Some States still impose limits on the amount of foreign currency which may be used for spending abroad and/or on the amount of its national currency which a temporary visitor may bring in from abroad. Such restrictions should be eliminated wherever possible. It’s recommended that the States hav- ing such currency restrictions should review their requirements, liberalize their currency regulations and formalities and abolish these restrictions as early as possible. It’s recommended that the States, airport authorities should inform passengers of the existence of passenger service charges. Procedures for pay- ment of these charges at every check-in point should be simplified. It’s recom- mended to simplify formalities in the clearance of export cargo. The export car- go procedures should be examined and simplified. Uniform customs treatment of containerized cargo should be considered. The carriage by air of live animals has increased in recent years. IATA Manual for the Carriage of live animals is expected to be of great assistance to the States. It’s recommended that approved internationally system for identifying, classifying and labeling dangerous or ha- zardous cargo would be applicable to all modes of transportation. It’s recom-

mended that to relieve congestion at international airports, it’s necessary to ex- pedite check-in procedures through simplification; to provide adequate staff and facilities; to use city terminals, to eliminate routine baggage weighing on short and medium-range flights and to establish a simple baggage reception system. Facilities should be available to provide incoming passengers with information of interest to tourists and on room, resonations at hotels Arrangements should be made to enable passengers on departure to book a room in the country of their destinations. Facilities for the proper care and handling of invalid passen- gers and of small children should be provided (for example, invalid chairs, baby trolleys, and a special room where these passengers can rest). Health clearance should be simplified and accelerated.
