Issuance of a Visa and Authorization for Temporary Admission Into the United States for Certain Nonimmigrant Aliens Infected With HIV
Document Number: E7-21841
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-06
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to amend the regulations pertaining to admission of certain nonimmigrants to the United States. This rule proposes to authorize issuance of certain short-term nonimmigrant visas and temporary admission for aliens who are inadmissible solely due to their infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The proposed rule would provide, on a limited and categorical basis, a more streamlined process to authorize these nonimmigrant aliens to enter the United States as visitors (for business or pleasure) for up to thirty days, subject to certain conditions to ensure the control and departure of such aliens. Nonimmigrant aliens who do not meet the specific circumstances of these clarifying instructions or who do not wish to consent to the conditions that would be imposed by this proposed rule may still elect a case-by-case determination of their eligibility for a waiver of the nonimmigrant visa requirements for aliens afflicted with HIV. The proposed rule also updates regulatory language to conform to a statutory change brought about by the Immigration Act of 1990.

The Final PEA addresses the substantive comments received on the Draft PEA during the public comment period. The Final PEA resulted in a FONSI that describes the programmatic action alternatives to be used as the approach to meet the requirements of WHTI.

Advance Information on Private Aircraft Arriving and Departing the United States
Document Number: E7-18121
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-09-18
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection
This notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposes to require the pilot of any private aircraft arriving in the United States from a foreign port or location or departing the United States for a foreign port or location to transmit to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) an advance electronic transmission of information regarding each individual traveling onboard the aircraft. This NPRM also proposes to add data elements to the existing notice of arrival requirements and proposes a new notice of departure requirement. The notice of arrival and notice of departure information would be required to be submitted to CBP through an approved electronic data interchange system in the same transmission as the corresponding arrival or departure manifest information. Under the NPRM, this data must be received by CBP no later than 60 minutes before an arriving private aircraft departs from a foreign location and no later than 60 minutes before a private aircraft departs a United States airport or location for a foreign port or place. Finally, this NPRM proposes to clarify landing rights procedures and departure clearance procedures as well as expressly setting forth CBP's authority to restrict aircraft from landing in the United States based on security and/or risk assessments; or, based on those assessments, to specifically designate and limit the airports from where aircraft may land or depart.
Addition of San Antonio International Airport to List of Designated Landing Locations for Certain Aircraft
Document Number: E7-17802
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-09-11
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection
This document proposes to amend the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Regulations by adding the San Antonio International Airport (SAT), located in San Antonio, Texas, to the list of designated airports at which certain aircraft arriving in the continental United States from certain areas south of the United States must land for CBP processing. This proposed amendment is made to improve the effectiveness of CBP enforcement efforts to combat the smuggling of contraband by air into the United States from the south.
Advance Electronic Transmission of Passenger and Crew Member Manifests for Commercial Aircraft and Vessels
Document Number: E7-15985
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-08-23
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection
This rule adopts as final, with the modifications set forth in this document, proposed amendments to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations concerning electronic manifest transmission requirements relative to travelers (passengers, crew members, and, in some instances, non-crew members) onboard international commercial flights and voyages arriving in and departing from the United States. The rule is designed to enhance national security and the level of security provided under the regulations for the commercial air and sea travel industries, and consequently increase national security in general. The rule also implements the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, which requires that electronic manifest information for passengers onboard commercial aircraft arriving in and departing from the United States, and passengers and crew onboard arriving and departing commercial vessels (with certain exceptions), be vetted by DHS against a government-established and maintained terrorist watch list prior to departure of the aircraft or vessel. Under this final rule, there are three options for air carriers to transmit manifest data for aircraft departing from or en route to the United States: Transmission of passenger manifests in batch form by an interactive method no later than 30 minutes prior to the securing of the aircraft doors (APIS 30); transmission of individual passenger manifest information as each passenger checks in for the flight, up to, but no later than, the time the flight crew secures the aircraft doors (APIS interactive Quick Query or AQQ); and transmission of passenger manifests in batch form by a non-interactive method no later than 30 minutes prior to the securing of the aircraft doors (APIS 30 ``non- interactive''). For sea travel, CBP will require vessel carriers to transmit passenger and crew manifests for vessels departing from the United States no later than 60 minutes prior to departure. For vessels departing from foreign ports destined to arrive at a U.S. port, CBP is retaining the current requirement to transmit passenger and crew arrival manifest data at least 24 hours and up to 96 hours prior to the vessel's entry at the U.S. port of arrival.

Receipt of Domestic Interested Party Petition Concerning Tariff Classification of Glass Optical Preforms
Document Number: E7-5712
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-03-28
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
The Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has received a petition submitted on behalf of a domestic interested party requesting the reclassification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) of glass optical preforms. CBP's current position is that glass optical preforms are classifiable duty-free in subheading 7002.20.1000, HTSUS, as glass rods of fused quartz or other fused silica, unworked. Petitioner maintains that this classification is incorrect because the optical fiber preforms consist of a glass core rod that has been ``worked'' by the addition of a layer of cladding glass to the core rod. Petitioner asserts that subheading 7020.00.6000, HTSUS, other articles of glass, other, represents the correct classification. The 2007 rate of duty under this provision is 5 percent ad valorem.

Type: Notice
Date: 2007-03-26
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
In a document published in the Federal Register on August 19, 2005, the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced its plan to conduct a voluntary program to test the viability of submitting electronic FTZ admission applications (CBP Form 214``FTZ Admission and/or Status Designation'') to CBP via the Automated Broker Interface (ABI). The test program was intended to run for a period of approximately 6 months from the program's September 30, 2005 commencement date with a final evaluation to take place at the end of that period. This notice informs interested members of the public that after CBP's initial evaluation of the test program, it was determined that due to the insufficient data collected the test should be run again for a period of approximately 6 months from March 26, 2007. The new test program is intended to encourage greater participation in the prototype by the trade and thereby provide CBP with more meaningful data by which to assess the feasibility of implementing the test program on a permanent basis.
