Airport Security Bonds

What is an Airport Security Bond?

An Airport Customs Security Area Bond, or Airport Security Bond is an agreement to comply with Customs Regulations within Customs security areas at an airport. Companies working within Customs security areas, or areas “accommodating international air commerce designated for processing passengers, crew, their baggage and effects arriving from foreign countries, as well as the aircraft deplaning and ramp area and other restricted areas designated by the port director” (19 CFR 122.181) are required to post a bond. This is usually designated as an activity code 11 bond on Customs Form 301. The bond provides a guaranty to CBP that if the bond principal (including its employees) fails to comply with Customs regulations that all liquidated damages will be paid by the obligors. If the applicant’s employer is the principal on an importer or brokers, custodian of bonded merchandise or international carrier bond a separate bond may not be needed. An Airport Security Bond may not be used to import goods into the United States.
