So what should I expect when entering countries like Mexico, Nicaragua, Columbia, Venezuela? How much will they charge to enter there border, or do they not charge? Do other countries like in Asia, Europe,ect charge fees to enter?

Its just that i read a post by Jonathan316 "Crusing Paranoia- valid", I was just didnt know what to expect. Like if they want a large amount of money to enter and if not mabey they would want a watch or something, I was just curious.

I believe U.S. Customs charges a fee for entry into the US from citizens of some countries. It''s likely those countries have reciprical arrangements, which means they charge U.S. citizens a fee when entering that country.

I would contact the U.S. State Deptartment, and also the Embassy of each country you plan to visit.

Yes, virtually every country (including the USA) charges a fee(s) of foreign vessels, ie: Cruising Permit, Fishing Licence, Port Clearances, Crew Visa, & possibly others. Determining the specific requirements & associated costs of the various jurisdictions is all part of cruise-planning. Good (current) Cruising Guides often provide useful information about these important formalities.
Regards,
Gord
