Click here to apply for FCC 214 license and/or 499 Filer ID

Any party seeking to provide common carrier communications services between the United States and a foreign point ("U.S.-international services") must request authorization from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Applicants may request authority to provide services on a facilities-based or resale basis, and may request such authority to apply globally or to specific foreign points. An international section 214 authorization permits a carrier to provide U.S.-international services on a common carrier basis subject to the provisions of the "exclusion list," which contains a list of U.S.-international routes to which section 214 authority does not apply; it also lists methods by which section 214 holders may not provide services.
