US Pre-clearance Resumes at Shannon Airport, Ireland
U.S. customs and immigration pre-clearance for BizAv/GA flights to the USA have resumed at Shannon Airport, following a lengthy suspension due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, all crew and PAX must now be cleared in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) office in the terminal due to precautionary health measures put in place by the CBP, and onboard clearance will not return until the COVID crisis has passed.
Pre-clearance operating hours will be unchanged from before they were curtailed by the pandemic, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. local time. All operators wishing to pre-clear at Shannon should notify their ground handler as early as possible (at least 24H in advance of arrival) so that CBP can begin processing information before arrival.
