Anyway, the form is available online and I've filled it out, but now I just need to get a stamp on it.

Plus I think I need to "relinquish" my cruising permit as well.
I have cleared into SXM direct from the USA with no Zarpe and they are fine. Everyone is fine with it because everyone knows you don't clear out of the USA.

But ring CBP on your reporting number and ask them
