Security of Aircraft and Safety of Passengers Departing From Airports From Venezuela to the United States
This document informs the public that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is unable to determine whether international airports in Venezuela that serve as the last point of departure for non-stop flights to the United States maintain and carry out effective aviation security measures. Since the Government of Venezuela has refused multiple requests to allow assessments of its airports by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), DHS can no longer verify the security of its airports. As authorized by statute, DHS is directing all U.S. and foreign air carriers (and their agents) providing service between the United States and Venezuelan airports, to provide notice to any passenger purchasing a ticket for transportation between the United States and these airports that DHS is unable to determine whether such airports maintain and carry out effective security measures. DHS is also requiring that similar notices be posted at U.S. airports.

Revision to Direct Mail Program for Submitting Form N-400, Application for Naturalization
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is revising its Direct Mail Program so that certain filings of Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, will now be filed at a designated lockbox facility instead of a USCIS Service Center. However, if you are the spouse of an active member of the Armed Forces, this notice instructs you now to file your Form N-400 at the Nebraska Service Center (NSC), whether you are filing from within the U.S. or abroad. This notice does not change the filing location for Forms N-400 filed by active members or certain veterans of the Armed Forces who are eligible to apply for naturalization under sections 328 or 329 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (the Act).
