Visiting yachts must clear Guam customs and immigration at Apra Harbor. All non-U.S. citizens entering Guam by yacht MUST HAVE A U.S. VISA. Visiting yachts are usually directed to proceed to MYC and crews are usually permitted to go ashore to await clearance. However, Apra Harbour is shared by the commercial port and the U. S. Navy, so Yachts are advised again to contact Port Control and not to disembark without permission.
Guam is physically located in an area of the Pacific sometimes referred to as "Typhoon Alley". Typhoon "season' is usually thought of as the summer months, June through August, however that cannot be relied upon. The latest typhoon information, including warning track charts, closest points ofapproach and anricipated wind speeds, updated every 6 hours, is available on the US Navy's "Joint Typhoon Warning Center" web site at: http://www.usno.navy.mil/JTWC/
