Recovery of U.S. Head Tax.

Passengers who desire to claim refund of Head Tax are required to comply with the following:

  • Temporary visitors to the United States should state in Question 24 on the U.S. Declaration Form, which should be completed at the time of booking, that they intend to leave the United States within a period of 60 days from the date of entry.

NOTE. — If a passenger states on the Declaration Form that the intended stay is to be in excess of 60 days, and later through unforeseen circumstances leaves within the prescribed period. United States Law stipulates that Head Tax is not recoverable.

  • Application should be made to the Purser of the Westbound steamer for receipt covering the United States Head Tax paid. This is necessary to facilitate refund of the Head Tax after passengers have left the United States.
  • Passengers should apply to the United States Immigrant Inspector at the port of arrival for Head Tax Transit Certificate (United States Form 514) without which form no refund of Head Tax will be considered by the United States Immigration Authorities, even though passengers should leave the United States within 60 days and would otherwise be entitled to refund of the Head Tax under existing United States law.
  • Refund of Head Tax will only be made by the United States Authorities when completed Forms 514 are filed with them within a period of 120 days from the date of entry into the United States as shewn on the top right-hand corner of the United States Form 514. No application for refund of Head Tax will be considered by the United States Authorities after the expiry of such period.

Although the period of time between arrival at a Canadian port and departure from the United States may exceed 60 days, this does not necessarily mean that persons in this category are prohibited from securing refund of Head Tax, so long as the actual period spent in the U.S. does not exceed 60 days. The application for refund, however, must be filed with the U.S. Immigration Authorities within 120 days of the actual date of crossing the border from Canada into the United States.

Passengers returning to Europe in Cunard White Star steamers may—on presentation of the necessary documents—viz. —Transit Certificate Form 514 completed, and the Company’s receipt for Head Tax paid—obtain refund of Head Tax from the Purser, providing the passengers have left the U.S. within the prescribed period of 60 days, and the completed Form 514 can be filed with the U.S. Authorities within 120 days of entry into the United States. Refund of Head Tax is subject to strict compliance with the above procedure.

AUTOMOBILES. In order to facilitate Customs clearance uncrated automobiles must be included on the U.S. Declaration Form.

BAGGAGE. Questions relating to Baggage should be referred to the Purser or ship's Baggage Master.

U.S. Customs. All passengers are required to make a declaration of personal baggage for the U.S. Customs authorities at New York. Blank declaration forms are obtainable from the Purser. Returning residents of the United States must declare all articles acquired abroad but wearing apparel and persona! effects taken overseas from the U.S. in the first case are entitled to be passed free of duty upon return.

An exemption of $100.00 worth of purchases is allowed each returning resident, subject to certain conditions which will be detailed by the Customs officer. Visitors may take in free of duty wearing apparel and personal effects not intended for sale but must declare all articles not included in this category. Severe penalties are imposed upon persons who make false declarations as to value, ownership or use of articles or who attempt to bribe or recompense a Customs officer.

Customs Examination. All articles liable to Customs duty must be declared. Any passenger who is in doubt should see the Purser or Baggage Master who will provide the latest information available.

On arrival baggage will be grouped alphabetically in Customs shed for examination. To help the passing and claiming of baggage passengers should have one of the Company’s labels, bearing the initial letter of their surname, affixed to each piece. The bedroom stewards have a supply of these labels and will affix them prior to landing.

It is for passengers themselves to see that all their baggage is passed by the Customs authorities on landing, and they are specially requested to claim their baggage before leaving the Customs shed, otherwise delay and extra charges for carriage will be incurred in forwarding to destination any baggage not accompanying passengers directly from the ship.

Checking baggage on arrival at New York. Facilities are available whereby passengers may arrange with the ship’s Baggage Master for the transfer of their baggage from the Company’s pier in New York to any point in Greater New York, Jersey City and Hoboken, including railroad terminals, hotels, residences, express companies or warehouses.

Passengers are thus relieved of this detail after disembarking. Rates and further information regarding this service can be obtained at the Purser’s office.

Baggage in Bond. Passengers en route to destinations outside the U.S.A. may have their checked baggage forwarded “In Bond” to a frontier point under Customs manifest without examination of the contents by a Customs officer at New York. The Purser or Baggage Master will be pleased to supply information.

Baggage Insurance. Passengers are recommended to insure their baggage as the Company’s liability is strictly limited in accordance with the terms of the passage contract. Baggage Insurance carrying worldwide cover can be arranged through the Purser’s office.

BANKING—FOREIGN MONEY EXCHANGE. A branch of the Midland Bank is available on board the ship where passengers wishing to exchange money or transact other banking business will receive every facility and attention.

BARBER AND HAIRDRESSER. The ship carries a well-equipped Barber’s Shop and competent Hairdresser.

CATERING. Passengers are invited to advise the Head Waiter of their preference in the matter of diet, and cooking and they can be assured of every attention to their wishes. Cooks of various nationalities are included in the kitchen personnel. It is suggested that passengers order their meals in advance, and the aforementioned official will readily assist passengers in making their choice.

CHEQUES. Passengers are advised that the Purser cannot accept private cheques.

CHANGES IN ACCOMMODATION. The Purser alone is authorized to make changes in accommodation and may only do so on payment of any difference in fare which may be required according to the Company’s current tariffs.

COMPLAINTS. Passengers entertaining any cause for complaint are requested to communicate particulars to a responsible officer in the ship so that an opportunity may be afforded to adjust matters.

DECK CHAIRS, CUSHIONS AND RUGS are available for hire and can be obtained through the Deck Steward at the price of 5 - each article. (Each rug is contained in a sealed envelope and bears a serial number worked into the material, thus enabling passengers to identify their own rugs).

DOGS. Passengers are notified that dogs should be handed over to the care of the livestock attendant and that they are not allowed in public rooms or on the passenger decks.

FIRE PRECAUTIONS. Passengers are specially requested to exercise care in disposing of cigar and cigarette ends and matches, and to make use of the receptacles provided for the purpose in the different parts of the ship, in view of the serious consequences which can arise from carelessness in this respect. Throwing lighted cigarettes, etc., overboard should also be avoided.

FIRE AND LIFEBOAT STATIONS. Passengers are earnestly requested to acquaint themselves with the notice in the staterooms regarding lifeboat and fire stations.
The Captain specially appeals to passengers to assist him by promptly mustering at their appointed stations at all times when passenger boat station muster is being held.

Only by immediate attendance at this important muster can passengers obtain the necessary instructions which are so vital to the well-being of all on board. The co-operation of every passenger is earnestly desired.

IMPORTATION OF LIQUOR. A considerable quantity of liquor imported in the baggage of passengers is purchased “ in bond ” at a price below the regular market value in the country of purchase and for that reason attention is called to the fact by the Collector, U.S. Customs Service, that the above market value must be ascertained and declared by the passenger instead of the price actually paid.

LANDING ARRANGEMENTS. The Purser will furnish passengers with a small card, detailing the landing arrangements, before arrival.

LANDING CARDS. It is necessary that passengers present their landing cards, together with passports to the Immigration Inspector for endorsement before leaving the ship.

LIBRARY. The ship has a fully equipped library and passengers are invited to borrow the volumes—no charge will be made.

MAIL. Passengers who may expect letters, postal packages, etc., should apply at the Purser’s office, and also leave their addresses so that any mail, etc., arriving after they have landed, can be re-directed.

PASSAGE TICKETS. Passengers are requested to hand their Passage Tickets to their bedroom stewards as soon as possible after embarkation.

PAYMENTS. Passengers should obtain a receipt on the Company’s form for any payments made on board for additional passage money, rugs, chairs, excess baggage, etc.

PORTHOLES. As it is dangerous for passengers to handle the ports, they are requested to ask the bedroom steward to open and close the ports in the staterooms as may be desired.

PROFESSIONAL GAMBLERS are reported as frequently travelling in Atlantic ships and passengers are warned to take precautions accordingly.

RADIO RECEIVERS AND ELECTRICAL APPARATUS.
Private radio receivers or other electrical apparatus must not be operated or connected to the ship’s electrical supply circuits without official approval, applications for which should be made to the Purser. Passengers using loud speakers are requested to avoid disturbing their fellow passengers.
