One copy of the general declaration must have the endorsement of the customs officer in the area from which departing that permit to proceed is granted, but this requirement shall not apply unless the aircraft is carrying residue cargo, or the commander, owner, or operator of the aircraft and the customs officer in charge have been notified by the immigration oficer that fines and liabilities under the immigration laws appear to have been incurred in connection with the aircraft and payment thereof has not been made or secured by sufficient deposit or bond. These copies shall be disposed of by the aircraft commander as follows:

(4) One copy of the general declaration and one copy of the air cargo manifest shall be delivered by the aircraft commander to the customs officer in charge at such place of entry, to be retained by such officer as the coastal manifest.

(f) If the aircraft is to proceed from Hawaii directly to the mainland, the immigration examination of passengers and crew and final determination of their admissibility to the mainland shall be completed before they depart for the mainland. With respect to passengers who are found to be United States citizens through primary inspection, by boards of special inquiry, or through appeal proceedings from the decisions of such boards, or who are by any such procedures found to be aliens admissible to the mainland, the special procedure shall be as follows:

(1) The general declaration and the air passenger manifests, as required by this section for immigration purposes, shall be in triplicate and shall be delivered by the aircraft commander to the immigration officer in charge in Hawaii.

(2) Each copy of the air passenger manifest shall be endorsed and signed by such officer in Hawaii to show which passengers are admissible as .citizens of the United States and which passengers are admissible as aliens.

(3) One copy of the general declaration and of each air passenger manifest shall be returned by the immigration officer in Hawaii to the aircraft commander with the signed endorsement that the passengers who are departing on the aircraft for the mainland are

Where a passenger makes a substantial claim to United States citizenship which is impracticable to determine in Hawaii, and the passenger desires to proceed by air to the mainland, he may be permitted by the immigration officer in charge in Hawaii to do so, subject to inspection and decision as to his status upon arrival in the mainland. In such case, copies of the general declaration and passenger manifest shall be furnished as prescribed in paragraph (e) of this section. In the case of such passengers, the aircraft commander shall notify the immigration officer at or

nearest the place of intended first landing on the mainland sufficiently in advance of arrival there for an immigrant inspector to meet the aircraft for the purpose of inspecting the passengers upon arrival there.

The information shall be furnished sufficiently in advance of the arrival of the aircraft in the mainland for an immigrant inspector to meet the aircraft. The place and date of arrival in Hawaii of an alien admitted there as an airman shall be the record port and date of arrival for immigration purposes,

For the purposes of this paragraph, verifying the departure of passengers by aircraft from Hawaii to the mainland is immigration inspection.
