DHS/CBP/Privacy Impact Assessment-004(g) Beyond the Border Entry/Exit Program Phase II

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) update to give notice of an update to the Beyond the Border Entry/Exit Program, which is an initiative of the U.S.-Canada Beyond the Border Action Plan. The Beyond the Border Entry/Exit Program will expand the sharing of border crossing information with the Canada Border Services Agency by exchanging biographic, travel document, and other border crossing information collected from individuals entering the United States from Canada and vice versa at land ports of entry. This PIA update covers Phase II of the Entry/Exit Program, which transitions the program from a pilot phase to an implementation phase. During Phase II, the United States and Canada intend to exchange and take operational action based on border crossing information for certain third-country nationals, permanent residents of Canada, and lawful permanent residents of the United States at all automated common land border ports of entry. DHS will publish additional updates to this PIA in advance of deployment of any subsequent phases to the Beyond the Border Entry/Exit Program.  June 26, 2013.
