§ 122.71 Aircraft departing with no commercial export cargo.

(i) Passengers for hire; or

(ii) Non-commercial cargo for which Electronic Export Information (EEI) is not required.

(2) If not cleared by telephone, an air cargo manifest containing the following statement, signed by the aircraft commander or agent, must be submitted to CBP:

I declare to the best of my knowledge and belief that there is no cargo on board this aircraft.

(Aircraft Commander or Agent)

(b)Timeliness. The request for telephone clearance must be received by the CBP officer in charge with sufficient time remaining before departure to ensure that CBP may undertake any necessary examination of the aircraft and cargo.

(c)Documentation. If clearance is granted by telephone, the aircraft commander is not required to file the documents required by this subpart.
