DHS/CBP/PIA–024 Arrival and Departure Information System

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Arrival and Departure Information System (ADIS) consolidates data from a variety of systems to create a unique person-centric record with complete travel history. Originally, CBP created ADIS to identify individuals who had overstayed their class of admission (“visa overstays”); however, due to ADIS’s unique abilities to conduct biographic matching, data-tagging, and filtering, CBP is broadening its use of ADIS for all traveler encounters regardless of citizenship. CBP is republishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to provide notice, and assess the privacy risks, of expanding ADIS beyond its original visa overstay mission. As the primary CBP system used to determine person-centric travel history and immigration status, ADIS supports a variety of non-law enforcement use cases that often require U.S. citizen travel history. CBP is reissuing this PIA to document the expanded uses of ADIS and its maintenance of all CBP travel records, including those of U.S. citizens. January 2020
