eAPIS stands for the Electronic Advance Passenger Information System. It was created by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2009, and is mandatory for every private aircraft flying in and out of the United States. The eAPIS replaces the Form 178 that pilots had to hand off to US Customs after landing at an Airport of Entry. Every plane should have an eAPIS manifest submitted to DHS no later than 60 minutes prior to take off, departing, as well as entering the United States. Pilots have the option to file their manifest up to a few weeks prior to departure. To ensure pilot compliance, DHS began assessing penalties against pilots ranging from $5,000 to $10,000.
