U.S. Customs

​Pilots wishing to utilize Customs after hours or on weekends must make the request in writing and fax it to 734-942-4842.  If you have any questions, contact a CBP Supervisor at 734-942-9000. CBP service is available 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday - Friday.  This service improves the convenience and saves time for international travelers by eliminating the need for an intermediate stop to clear customs. Oakland County International Airport is a user-fee CBP operation.  Because the airport provides the agent as a service to users, there is a fee based on aircraft weight.
