From 1 September 2011, the flight plan will only be accepted when the status of the AVANAC final “N” is VALIDATED. For your information, all Overflight Authorization issued by ANAC (AVANAC) with final “N” has its status changed when actions are taken, such as the registration of the TEAT (aircraft entry and temporary admission authorization) in our computerized system by the Customs Authorities. An automatic email is sent to the registered address in the request form, every time the status is changed.
Below, you can check all status of an AVANAC:
AVANAC ISSUED - means that ANAC has analysed the documents presented during the clearance request and approved the issuance of AVANAC. In this status, the operation of aircraft in Brazilian territory is not authorized, as provided in Art. 8 of Decree 97.464 of January 20, 1989.
AVANAC VALIDATED - means that the aircraft landed in Brazil, went through Customs Authorities and had the TEAT issued and registered in our computerized system. In this status, the operation of aircraft in Brazilian territory is authorized.
AVANAC FINISHED - means that, before leaving the Brazilian territory, the TEAT was delivered and registered in our computerized system by the Customs Authorities, ending the AVANAC and all of its issuance process. If the aircraft is being imported, the AVANAC will remain valid for more 20 (twenty) days from customs clearance process closing date, allowing operations to complete the Initial Technical Inspection (VTI) of the aircraft.
AVANAC EXPIRED – means that the AVANAC issuance process was not correctly ended and its validity is expired. It can be due to the aircraft has left the country and has not delivered the TEAT; or has left the country, delivered the TEAT but it was not registered in our system; or it is in illegal situation in the country.
AVANAC CANCELLED - means that the AVANAC or TEAT was cancelled by the ANAC or by the Customs Authorities due to breaking the law.
AVANAC CANCELLED BY PERIOD - means that the TEAT was not registered in our computerized system after two working days from scheduled landing date. This is interpreted by the system as if the aircraft had not arrived in Brazil.
Finally, it is important to remember that, in any situation, the AVANAC expires when: i) there is a change of technical crew without previously notifying ANAC for due authorization; ii) any of the following documents expires, is suspended or cancelled: the aircraft registration and airworthiness certificates, crew licenses and technical and medical certificates and insurance policy.
