Advance Notice of Arrival for Yachts
Countries around the world are fast changing existing regulations or activating new regulations regarding Advance Notice of Arrival (ANOA) for yachts. These regulations are currently being applied with little notice so it is imperative that there be a central database that is constantly updated for cruisers/sailors to refer to.
As this Wiki page is an ideal means to update information constantly, by cruisers "out there" and all who have relevant information, please post and edit the information below. Supply as much information as possible.
Alternatively, email the information to (boardcaptain AT gmail.com)
- Australia - 96 Hours
- New Zealand - 48 Hours
- Fiji - 48 Hours.
- Fiji Customs must be notified at least 48 hours prior to arrival using the form C2C downloadable from FIRCA (Fiji Inland Revenue and Customs Administration). Fax the form to Customs at one of the Fiji ports of entry (Suva - (679) 3302864, Lautoka - (679) 6667734, Savusavu - (679) 8850728 or Levuka - (679) 3440425) or email Fiji Customs. Failure to comply can attract heavy penalties.
