These user fees were announced in a final rule published in the Federal Register by CBP on January 26, 2007. The increase in user fees applies to to the arrival of certain commercial vessels, commercial trucks, railroad cars, private aircraft and private vessels, passengers aboard commercial aircraft and commercial vessels and barges or other bulk carrier arrivals. The annual fee caps for these commercial user fees remain unchanged.

In addition, the “dutiable mail fee” will rise from $5.00 to $5.50 and the cost of annual customs brokers permits will increase from $125 to $138. The summary of the new CBP user fees structure is set forth below:
