Overflight Permits


FLYING INTO MELBOURNE FROM THE BAHAMAS

Overflight Permits are required for travel to Melbourne International Airport from the Bahamas and other foreign airports and must be obtained through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection office in Leesburg, FL, prior to flight.

Contact:
Art Hoblin
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Leesburg
352-787-4217
8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday

Once an overflight permit is obtained, pilots must coordinate their estimated arrival time with U.S. Customs and Border Protection in MELBOURNE. Be advised, pilots should contact the Melbourne Customs office with as much lead time as possible — weeks or a month in advance, if possible.

Contact:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Melbourne, FL
321-674-5796
8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday

Weekend arrivals must be coordinated with the Customs office before 4 p.m. the Friday prior.

An overflight permit gives a general-aviation pilot the privilege of landing at an airport, not the right to land at an airport. The appropriate Customs forms are available at www.cbp.gov. These include:

  • Overflight – Form 442
  • Overflight  crew – Form 442A

For additional information on overflight rules, go to www.cbp.gov and search for "Guide to Private Flyers".
