I believe the same is true for most countries, hence the quarantine flag requirement when you sail into a foreign port and drop anchor. However it's not true for the good old US of A. You are required to check into customs as soon as reasonably possible when you return from a foreign country.
I thought that once you entered foreign waters, you had to clear Customs when you returned to US waters regardless of whether or not you dropped anchore or went ashore.
I was surprised to hear that's no longer the case
