Recovery of U.S. Head Tax.

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

  1. 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 proscribed period, United States Law stipulates that Head Tax is not recoverable.

  1. 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.
  2. 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 Unites States Immigration Authorities, even though passengers should leave the United States within 00 days and would otherwise be entitled to refund of the Head Tax under existing United States law.
  3. 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 Limited 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.
