Must Have Items
4. Hard-sided Lockable Gun Cases
If you plan on bringing your own guns with you, the FAA requires they must be secured in hard sided lockable gun cases. The airlines can be rough of them so if you have valuable guns, make sure you carry them in cases that can withstand the abuse.
5. U.S. Customs Form 4457
It is now mandatory that U.S. Customs Form 4457 be filled out and signed by a Customs officer for every item of value that you plan on taking with you. These items include your guns, laptops, cameras, jewels, or anything else of value. Without this form, you may have your items confiscated or have to pay duty on them upon your return. Form 4457 is good for life. It proves ownership of the guns and any other items you travel with that have serial numbers both in this country and the country in which you will be hunting.
There is no charge for the form and you will need to take your guns and any other valuable personal effects such as laptops, cameras, jewellery, etc, that you would like to register to a U.S. Customs office. A U.S. Customs office is located at all sea-ports and all international airports. For a list of U.S. Customs offices go to U.S. Customs Offices. If there is not a customs office near you, you can do this at the last airport that you depart the United States from, but you will need to get there in plenty of time before your connecting flight and you will have to re-check your baggage after the inspection. It is strongly suggested that you get this done beforehand.
Our staff can assist you with all of your flight arrangements or you can choose to make the arrangements yourself.
Airlines allow only 2 checked bags and one carry-on per person. Your guns will be one (1st) and your suitcase will be the (2nd) second. Most US Domestic airlines now limit each bag to no more than 50 lbs. each or overweight charges will apply. If you plan on taking 2 guns, make sure you have a single case that holds 2 guns or you will be paying for an extra bag.
Recommended Items to Bring
