The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is developing a new, voluntary Advance Travel Authorization (ATA) process to collect information from eligible noncitizens requesting advance authorization to travel to the United States to seek a discretionary grant of parole. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is publishing this new Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to provide notice and assess the privacy risks associated with ATA. ATA launched October 12, 2022, to implement a parole process for certain undocumented noncitizens from select countries and their qualifying immediate family members, under which those individuals may request advance authorization to travel to the United States to seek a discretionary grant of parole. This Privacy Impact Assessment discusses the general workflow of ATA and the information collected, stored, and used at each step. CBP’s ATA collection is conducted through the CBP One™ mobile application, and CBP is publishing a CBP One™ Privacy Impact Assessment appendix update concurrently with this ATA Privacy Impact Assessment.
