Clearance Procedures exiting USA - Caribbean
We are planning to take our US registered boat with all US crew out of US waters for the first time end Oct/Early November - and head from Moorhead City, NC to Antigua.
To clear customs in Antigua we need to have our clearance papers from our prior country / port (i.e. the USA). I've no idea what clearance papers look like, or if it simply takes the form of a stamp in our log book. I assume I'll be able to get the appropriate documentation at Moorhead city, and I assume I can just call the CBP at Moorhead city and have them come down and visit our boat. However I can't find any information on the Customs and Border Patrol web site.
If anyone has got such a clearance from Moorhead city in the last couple of years - can you tell me any details? Where did they board you? How long do you have before you MUST leave once you have the clearance papers? What paperwork is involved? and more importantly is this a couple of hours effort or a several day exercise?
