ROAM app makes customs reporting easier in Michigan

ADVERTISEMENT

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is offering new options for clearance of private boats entering or returning to the U.S. in Michigan.  Four sites in the Eastern Upper Peninsula and Northern Lower Michigan are now equipped with iPad reporting via the ROAM (Reporting Offsite Arrival-Mobile) app.

The iPads allow boaters to report their arrival and communicate with CBP officers remotely, eliminating the time and location constraints of the only authorized in-person reporting site in the Eastern Upper Peninsula at George Kemp Marina in Sault Ste. Marie. The four iPad sites are Rogers City Marina, Detour Village, Drummond Island Yacht Haven and Mackinac Island.

Those arriving somewhere other than those four sites can download an Android or Apple version of the ROAM app on their phone or tablet. Once installed, the app enables remote reporting of arrivals and video conferencing with officers at the Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, Port of Entry. Having a ROAM account also means boaters do not have to reenter personal and vessel information at each entry.

If it is determined that an in-person inspection will need to be conducted, boaters may have to wait for officers to arrive from Sault Ste. Marie, or they may be directed to report to George Kemp Marina.
