The US-VISIT program is expanding its entry procedures to the secondary inspection areas of land border ports of entry with Canada and Mexico by December 31, 2005. The additional port of entries will begin biometric data collection as part of US-VISIT. No changes will be made to the US-VISIT process or to the classifications of visitors subject to US-VISIT.
The US-VISIT process collects biometric and biographic information from visitors at U.S. posts. The US-VISIT entry procedures have been in place at various land border ports of entry since December 29, 2004, and are also in place at 115 airports and 15 seaports.
