eSeaClear® is a fast and easy way to clear in and out of port in Antigua. As skipper, it lets you send declaration information to all border agencies before you arrive or depart. It also allows you to manage your vessel, crew and passenger information online.

New Clearance Ports in Antigua
Visiting yachts can now clear in and out of two additional ports:

  • Heritage Quay
  • Deep Water Harbour

The West Indies Oil Company now supplies low Sulphur fuel at Heritage Quay.

If you are just visiting Antigua to refuel at Heritage Quay, you still need to clear in and out with Customs and Immigration. In the "Arrival Port" drop down box, you will now see the new additional ports listed.

You may now also select "Refuelling" in the eSeaClear drop down box for "Reason for Visit".

Hurricane Relief Aid Clearance Procedures
If you are bringing any goods or materials that are destined for Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica or other Caribbean islands to support relief efforts you must complete additional documentation that can be found via the ABMA website:

If you are transporting nationals from affected islands, you must clear into Heritage Quay, St. John's where people will be assessed and cleared in.

Proven Performance
Since it started in Antigua for the 2012 season, some 135,000 arrival and departure notices for passengers and crew have been processed online using eSeaClear, aboard 30,000 vessels. The numbers speak for themselves. eSeaClear is an outstanding success in Antigua.

If you would like to see eSeaClear available in other countries in the region, please mention this to the border agencies when visiting neighboring islands.

While we continue to receive positive comments on the eSeaClear web portal, the real kudos should go to Customs, Immigration, National Parks and Port Authority in Antigua for their continued support and enthusiasm. A good team-effort all round.
