Torres proposes pre-arrival submission of flight, vessel manifest

Airlines and vessel operators would be required to provide the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency a manifest prior to arrival to Guam under a bill proposed by Sen. Mary Torres.

“As our island’s ‘first line of defense,’ the CQA is tasked with protecting our borders and securing our ports of entry. The information collected via manifest is a vital component of achieving that mission.” Torres said. “But current law does not reflect recent technological advancements or today’s security concerns.”
