DHS/ICE/PIA-003 – electronic Travel Document System

electronic Travel Document (eTD) System, February 6, 2014 (PDF, 18 pages, 218 KB).  ICE owns and operates this system, which provides an efficient means for ICE personnel to request, and foreign consular officials to review and adjudicate, travel document requests for aliens who have been ordered removed or granted voluntary departure from the United States, but do not possess valid travel documents.  The original PIA was published on October 13, 2006.  Since that time, several technical releases have been made to improve the overall efficiency of the system, and a flag has been added to identify aliens with a criminal record, thus necessitating this replacement PIA.  For the original PIA, see the Retirement section below.
