Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has launched a newsletter to provide private aircraft operators with updates and best practices for complying with Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) requirements. The newsletter, created with input from NBAA and other stakeholders, is intended to be a monthly publication.

Because CBP has received many common questions, they are working to address current issues and frequently asked questions through a newsletter format. The information is intended to assist private aircraft pilots in preparing and submitting APIS manifests by addressing common mistakes, best practices, and regulatory requirements.

The Private Aircraft eAPIS Newsletter is being published through the collaborative efforts of partnering aviation trade organizations. The contributors for this newsletter are:

AOPA: Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association
COPA: Canadian Owners and Pilots Association
NBAA: National Business Aviation Association
EAA: Experimental Aircraft Association

NBAA Members that have additional APIS related questions are encouraged to contact the NBAA Operations Service Group at (202) 783-9250 or
