International Operation Information:

If you wish to operate a ham radio outside os the United States, then special considerations must take place. Here in Michigan, many hams use their equipment in Canada as well as the US. Also, operations in the Caribbean Islands, etc. are used when we go on vacation. YOU MUST have proper documentation to use these privileges.

International Amateur Radio Permit ~ The IARP is used for operating from certain countries in the Americas. These are issued by member-society of the International Amateur Radio Union [IARU] for the country of original license. For the US this is the ARRL. The permit is valid for 365 days or license expiration (which ever occurs first). The operation must follow the rules for the country from which you are operating - be sure you know what rules you need to follow! Read the ARRL site information carefully and to get an IARP application.

Countries include at this time (July, 2020): Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haite, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, United States of America, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Your original license and an IRAP is all that is required for operation(s). Amateurs can find a list of the countries which accept an IARP at An informational operational document is available to assist you: US Amateurs Travelling and Operating Abroad - informational document (February 2019).

Other foreign operations require additional considerations ... start on the IARP page and look for 'International Operating' and 'Operating Overseas' for further help.
