The Mexican National Immigration Institute (INM) now requires all pilots to submit Advanced Passenger Information (APIS) to the Mexican government before every flight entering or exiting Mexico. Failure to comply with these regulations could result in fines of up to $5,000 (US) per day. Pilots are required to call within 30 minutes of departure and after the cabin door is closed.
FltPlan is an approved provider of APIS data to the Mexican government. Our system meets Mexican entry/exit requirements and uses an electronic data interchange system approved by Mexican INM. In addition to all of the US eAPIS Service features, above, our Mexican Manifest service offers a dedicated, 24-hour FltPlan phone line. After you create your manifest, just call and we will submit the manifest for you.
CARICOM stands for Caribbean Community. CARICOM was originally established in 2007 and is being strictly enforced at present, however, not all of the 15 CARICOM member countries take part in electronic APIS. CARICOM is required for all international flights to/from countries and between CARICOM countries.

If you are flying to or from the U.S. and arriving to or departing from an airport or country that requires CARICOM, your U.S. eAPIS manifest will be automatically submitted to fulfill the CARICOM requirements. This service includes unlimited manifests with no additional fees.
