Seaway Pre-Entry Notification Required

March 5, 2009

On March 4, the Great Lakes / St. Lawrence Seaway System issued a notice stating that all foreign flagged vessels intending to transit the Seaway must submit a complete Notice of Arrival (NOA) 96 hours prior to entering the Seaway at Call In Point 2 (CIP 2). The NOA must be provided electronically following the USCG National Vessel Movement Center’s (NVMC) procedures and using either a website (http://www.nvmc.uscg.gov), eXtensible Markup Language format (XML schema), or InfoPath application.

To complete the NOA correctly for the Seaway, CIP2 shall be selected as the Arrival Port, Foreign to Saint Lawrence Seaway shall be selected as the Voyage Type, and Saint Lawrence Seaway – Transit shall be selected as the Arrival State, City and Receiving Facility.

As a reminder, if calling on a U.S. port, an additional NOA must be submitted to the NVMC in accordance with 33 CFR 160, subpart C.
