Refund of United States Head Tax

Under revised United States Government regulations Head Tax paid at the time of booking by passengers holding visitors’ visas (Section 3, paragraph 2) and Canadian, Mexican, etc., domiciled citizens (who do not require vise for temporary admission to the U.S.A.), is refundable only when passengers obtain from the U.S. Immigration Inspector at port of arrival a Certificate of Exemption confirming that they are not assessed for Head Tax.

These Certificates of Exemption are only issued to passengers who satisfy the U.S. Immigration Inspector (whose decision is final) that they do not intend to remain in the United States longer than 60 days, and to facilitate immediate refund of Head Tax to such passengers the Purser will also furnish them with a separate receipt for Head Tax.

Unless a Certificate of Exemption is obtained from the U.S. Immigration Inspector Head Tax cannot be refunded even though passengers eventually depart from the United States within the 60 days limit.

Transit Passengers holding U.S. transit vise (Section 3, paragraph 3) who fail to satisfy the U.S. Immigration Inspector that they will depart from the United States within 60 days (thus not being able to obtain Certificate of Exemption), who have not already paid Head Tax will be required to pay the Head Tax to the Purser prior to disembarkation.

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 personal 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.

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.

CUISINE. Nous demandons aux passagers de bien vouloir faire connaître au Tourist Steward leur préférence comme cuisine our égime ; la plus grande attention sera apportée à leur donner satisfaction. Le personnel des cuisines comprend des Chefs de diverses nationalités.

In der Küche sind Köche verschiedener Nationalitäten beschäftigt, sodass alle Wünsche weitestgehende Berücksichtigung finden können.

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 live-stock attendant and that they are not allowed in public rooms or on the passenger decks.

EXCHANGE OF MONEY. For the convenience of passengers the Purser is able to exchange a limited amount of English, U.S. and Canadian money at rates which will be advised on application.

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.
