Agency: Office of the Secretary, Us-Visit, Department of Homeland Security
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is republishing the Privacy Act system of records notice (SORN) for the Arrival and Departure Information System (ADIS) in order to expand its authority and capability to serve additional programs that require information on individuals throughout the immigrant and non-immigrant pre-entry, entry, status management, and exit processes. These changes include the addition of a routine use to allow for sharing of information with the intelligence community in support of the DHS mission to protect the United States from potential terrorist activities; the addition of a routine use for cases of identity theft; clarification on the sources of data in ADIS, potentially including foreign governments; and a reduction of the retention period for ADIS data.
