Due the approach of Tropical Storm Cristóbal in the New Orleans metropolitan area this afternoon, the CBP New Orleans Marine Division will close at 12:30 PM on Sunday June 7, 2020.
See Southern Currents 20-032 dated Saturday June 6, 2020 where a Blanket Delay in Departure was issued, and remains in effect.
As a reminder, while the Marine Division is closed, hours/days do not count when calculating timeframes for:

• Vessel formal entrance after arrival [48 hours] (19 CFR  4.3a);
• Filing complete manifests and export declarations [4 days] (19CFR 4.75b).

When the MS River Pilots and USCG Captain of the Port lift vessel movement restrictions on the Mississippi River, the Blanket Delay in Departure will be lifted, and the Marine Division will re-open.

A Trade Notice will be disseminated.
Any emergent marine division issues this weekend, or questions about this trade notice, should be relayed to Assistant Port Director Mark Choina via email at mark.s.choina@cbp.dhs.gov.

Official notice is available here..
