DHS/CBP/PIA-057 Electronic Secured Adjudication Forms Environment (e-SAFE)


U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is tasked with determining the admissibility of all individuals seeking admission into the United States. e-SAFE is a web-based waiver application system that allows inadmissible visa-exempt individuals to apply for a waiver of inadmissibility. CBP is updating this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to meet the guidelines contained in Executive Order (EO) 13780, "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States." The EO requires the capture of social media "handles" or identifiers of applicants and the names and addresses of individuals with whom waiver applicants anticipate they will be in contact while in the United States. This information will help improve the screening and vetting protocols and procedures associated with the waiver issuance process. March 2019
