"The Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security, in conjunction with the Bureau of Consular Affairs, Department of State, published in the federal Register a Final Rule to implement the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) on November 24, 2006, which can be found at 71 FR 68411. The initial requirements of WHTI are the first phase in the implementation of new passport requirements for certain travelers to, and from, the United States as defined in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) reflects WHTI as set out in the Final Rule and follows the initial PIA for WHTI on the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), approved on August 11, 2006 and published on the DHS Privacy Office website, www.dhs.gov/privacy. This updated PIA reflects changes made to WHTI based upon changes in policy and amendments to statutory authority as well as in response to comments on the WHTI NPRM."
