Information for Passengers


The New York Office of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie has made arrangements that mail addressed to passengers arriving in New York may be obtained at the principal exit on the upper floor of the Pier. This only applies to such letters, etc., that arrive too late to be delivered to passengers on board during their stay at the quarantine station.

Passengers are reminded that the porters on the New York piers are not allowed to ask for gratuities in consideration of the handling of passengers' baggage, they being paid sufficient wages for their services. If, nevertheless, any porter should demand payment for handling such baggage, passengers are requested to note the number plate on his cap and to report him to one of the uniformed policemen on the pier.

In order to assure quietness throughout the ship, passengers are respectfully requested not to use the promenade deck for promenading purposes during the hours between 11:00 pm and 7:00 am

On arrival in New York the "Landing card" attached to your ticket is to be handed to the Immigration Officer for endorsement. First-class passengers will receive the landing cards by the purser during the voyage.

Wireless advance bookings of Pullman, sleeping and parlor car accommodation for the journey from New York to places situated in the interior may be effected on board through the intermediary of the purser.

Baggage Insurance. Passengers who omitted, prior to the commencement of their passage, to insure their baggage against all or any risks can still do so, at moderate rates of premium and at favourable terms, upon application to the purser or baggage master on board.


All passengers intending to proceed to the United States, Including non-American citizens resident in the United States, are required to pay, previous to their departure, the head tax of eight dollars U. S. currency imposed by the United States Government.

This tax is not payable by:

  1. American citizens capable of producing an American passport as evidence of their nationality;
  2. Children below 16 accompanied by their parents or one of them;
  3. Diplomatic or consular representatives and other duly authorized government officials, including their suites and families, irrespective of the purpose for which they desire to proceed to the United States, but only if they can produce a diplomatic passport;
  4. Passengers intending to proceed to Canada via the United States, provide that, upon their landing in the United States, they are in possession of railroad ticket entitling them to travel to some Canadian destination.

Non-American women married to American citizens subsequent to September 21, 1922, are required to pay the tax. Non-Americans proceeding to the United States on a visit or for business purposes, who do not intend to stay for more than 59 days, are also required to pay the tax, but may have the amount refunded to them upon application, provided that

  1. They enter, upon their departure for New York, the words: "No longer than 59 days" in reply to question No. 24 of the questionnaire to be filled in by non-American passengers, and that
  2. They advise the immigration officer in New York, upon arriving there, of their intention not to stay for more than 59 days, and that they obtain from said official a so-called transit certificate, form No. 514.

Such transit certificate, however, is only valid if the period of 59 days is not exceeded, and if the purser or captain (or his representative) of the steamer by which the passenger returns or continues his voyage, has entered a note stating the name of the steamer and the date of her departure from the United States, adding his signature as well.

Persons continuing their voyage from the United States to other countries by rail, are required to produce said certificate to the conductor who will enter the date and the train number when crossing the United States frontier.

The transit certificate must be returned to the Immigration Authorities, Washington, within 120 days of the date of the passenger's arrival in New York.

This must be effected through the intermediary of the shipping company whose steamer the passenger used for his voyage to the United States.

Applications for refunding the head tax are disregarded if this period is exceeded. The amount of the tax. however, may also be refunded to the passenger against his returning the transit certificate to the office of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie at the place of embarkment in New York previous to his departure from New York, or, during his return from America to Europe, to the purser on board, or, upon arriving in Hamburg, to the office of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie, Abteilung Personenverkehr, Alsterdamm 25, Hamburg.

On the B-Deck of the SS HAMBURG

An Office of the Tourist Department has been established. This Office furnishes information to passengers concerning the sailings of the steamers, the railway services from port of arrival into the interior, the air service and all other arrangements of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie. It also provides information with regard to customhouse and passport arrangements and other questions which are of importance to travelers. At the Office tickets are issued for railroads and steamers to all parts of the world.
