Privacy Impact Assessment for the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative Land and Sea Final Rule [open pdf - 135KB]
"The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in conjunction with the Bureau of Consular Affairs at the Department of State (DOS), published in the Federal Register a final rule to notify the public of how they will implement the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) for sea and land ports-of entry. The final rule removes the current regulatory exceptions to the passport requirement provided under sections 212(d)(4)(B) and 215(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). On August 9, 2007, the DHS Privacy Office issued a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the proposed rule, which was published in the Federal Register on June 26, 2007, at 72 FR 35088. This PIA updates the earlier PIA for the proposed rule to reflect changes in the WHTI final rule for land and sea ports-of-entry."
