Abstract: CBP proposes to revise the questions on CBP Form I–94W and ESTA, which are required for Visa Waiver Program (VWP) travelers, in order to make them more easily understandable to respondents, and to collect more detailed information about health and security issues. CBP also proposes to remove some questions from CBP Form I–94W and ESTA that are no longer relevant. CBP Form I–94W is used to document a VWP traveler’s admission into the United States at land ports of entry. It is filled out by aliens and is used to collect information on citizenship, residency, and contact information for aliens traveling under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). The data elements collected on CBP Form I–94W enable DHS to perform its mission related to the screening of alien visitors for potential risks to national security, and the determination of admissibility to the United States. The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is the automated system that must be used by VWP travelers arriving at U.S. air and sea ports of entry. These travelers must provide the required data elements electronically to CBP and obtain a travel authorization through ESTA before embarking on travel to the United States. ESTA can be accessed at https:// www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/id_visa/ esta/. Instructions and a sample of CBP Form I–94W can be viewed at https:// forms.cbp.gov/pdf/visa_waiver.pdf. Current Actions: This submission is being made to revise the information collected on ESTA and on Form I–94W by adding some new health and security questions; by revising some of the existing questions; and by removing some questions that are no longer relevant. The estimated number of I– 94Ws filed annually was increased due to updated estimates. There is no change to the estimated time to complete ESTA or Form I–94W. There are no proposed changes to Form I–94. Type of Review: Revision. Affected Public: Individuals, Carriers, and the Travel and Tourism Industry. Form I–94W (Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Arrival/Departure) Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,835,951. Estimated Number of Total Annual Responses: 1,835,951. Estimated Time per Response: 8 minutes.
