We establish long-time stability of multi-dimensional noncharacteristic boundary layers of a class of hyperbolic-parabolic systems including the compressible Navier-Stokes equations with inflow [outflow] boundary conditions, under the assumption of strong spectral, or uniform Evans, stability. Evans stability has been verified for small-amplitude layers by Guès, Métivier, Williams, and Zumbrun. For large-amplitude layers, it may be efficiently checked numerically, as done in the one-dimensional case by Costanzino, Humpherys, Nguyen, and Zumbrun.
