Hi All,

Has anyone received their DTOPS/CBP sticker for this year? I paid for mine in November of last year and the site says 'fulfillment indicated' unlike 'fulfillment completed' like my past years'. Looking at the 'view aircraft', this year doesn't have a number assigned yet so I suspect that means it hasn't shipped yet either.

Yep, no number till they are back to work and assign a number. I am in the same boat. But you are good to go by just printing your receipt off that shows you paid them for your 2019 decal. Then you can file your eAPIS either using your 2018 number or just leaving the field blank - either method is acceptable to the CBP. And of course CBP is still working the border station just like ATC is still working. I came back across this past weekend. The only positive of this is that it seemed to me that traffic is much lighter than normal due to concern for the shutdown.

I also paid for mine in November and got the sticker in December.   I would just call ahead to the port and double check before showing up without one. As @kortopates advises you will probably be ok.   I have always been impressed with the ease and professionalism of the CBP at the airports where I enter.      Others seem to have had different experiences at times, so YMMV.   Missteps can be costly.  Then again, better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Thanks everyone! I appreciate on the information and firsthand experience. Like you said Brad, missteps can be costly and I'd rather measure twice and cut once. I'll keep that receipt on me if I'm able to head down.

I spoke with Customs yesterday at FXE. They told me to either enter my 2018 DTOPS # or “Pending” in that field of eApis. Bring your receipt for the DTOPS sticker.

Good to know..I thought entering “pending”in rapid form like I’ve done years past wasn’t allowed

I never got mine.  Ordered in November.  Have the receipt which is all that really matters though.
