United States Head Tax

Passengers who desire to claim refund of Head Tax are required to comply with the following:—

  1. Temporary visitors to the United States should state in Question 24 on the U.S. Declaration Form, which should be completed at the time of booking, that they intend to leave the United States within a period of 60 days from the date of entry.
    Note.—If a passenger states on the Declaration Form that the intended stay is to be in excess of 60 days, and laterthrough unforeseen circumstances, leaves within the prescribed period, United States Law stipulates that Head Tax is not recoverable
  2. Passengers should apply to the United States Immigration Inspector at the port of arrival for Head Tax Transit Certificate (United States Form 514) without which form no refund of Head Tax will be considered by the United States Immigration Authorities, even though passengers should leave the United States within 60 days and would otherwise be entitled to refund of the Head Tax under existing United States Law
  3. Refund of Head Tax can be made only if completed Forms 514 are filed with the United States Authorities within a period of 120 days from the date of entry into the United States as shown on the top right-hand corner of the Form 514. No application for refund of Head Tax will be considered by the United States Authorities after the expiration of such period

Passengers returning to Europe in vessels of the Company may, on presentation of Form 514 completed and the Company’s receipt for Head Tax paid, obtain refund of Head Tax from the Purser, provided the passengers have left the United States within the pre-scribed period of 60 days and the completed Form 514 can be filed with the United States Authorities within 120 days of entry into the United States.

Refund of Head Tax is subject to strict compliance with the above procedure.

Sailing Permits—Eastbound

Eastbound passengers who are not citizens of the United States must hold Certificates of Clearance (Sailing Permits) issued by the Collector of Internal Revenue for the district in which they reside. In New York Certificates of Clearance may be secured from the Supervising Internal Revenue Agent, Room 131, Custom House, Bowling Green, New York City.

There are no requirements to be met in this connection by U.S- Citizens sailing from the United States.
