RECOVERY OF U. S. HEAD TAX.

This Tax may be recovered by passengers, if same has been paid, provided they inform the U.S. Immigration Inspector on arrival at New York of their intention to leave the United States within 60 days (the time prescribed by U.S. Law), and obtain from him Transit Certificate Form 514.

It is also necessary for Transit Certificate Form 514 to be handed to the transportation company when completed, in time to allow same to be placed before the Immigration Authorities in Washington within 120 days of passenger’s arrival in the United States.
Unless this regulation is complied with the Tax cannot be recovered.

Passengers, proceeding to the U. S. with the intention to stay in the States during a period exceeding 60 days, and make to this effect a declaration at the port of debarkation, will not be entitled to the reimbursement of the Head Tax, even if such passengers should leave the U. S. within the limit of 60 days.

Passengers, who desire to be reimbursed of the U. S. Head Tax, are politely requested to clearly indicate on arrival at the debarkation port and also on the declaration form they have to fill in when booking passage that it is not within their intention to prolong their sojourn in the U. S. over the 60 days.

NOTE. — Will passengers who have not paid the Head Tax in consequence of their being in transit to Canada kindly complete Form 514 (which must be obtained from the Immigration Officials at New York) and forward same to the Red Star Line, 1, Broadway, New York, as soon as possible after their departure from the United States, or hand to the Purser of the steamer in which they return to Europe.

LONG RANGE WIRELESS SERVICE

This vessel is fitted with special long range wireless apparatus which will enable passengers to communicate with their friends or business connections on shore at any time during the voyage across the North Atlantic Ocean.

The Wireless charge for messages directed through the Long Distance Wireless Station at Devizes, England is 10d. per word: directed through Louisburg, Nova Scotia, or Chatham, Mass, is 9d. per word.

For messages exchanged with ships of other nationalities, the general rate is 8 ½ d. per word, but as Dutch, Belgian and certain other vessels apply a Wireless ship charge with a minimum of 10 words, the charge for messages addressed to the vessels will be calculated as follows:

  • For less than 10 words: 3/6 plus a charge of 4 d. per word.
  • For 10 words or more: 8 ½ d. per word.

SPECIAL RATE MESSAGES
