In general, nonimmigrant visitors to the U.S. territories of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) are required to obtain a visa from the U.S. Department of State before being admitted. CBP created the Guam-Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (G-CNMI) Visa Waiver Program (VWP) which allows certain nonimmigrant visitors to seek admission to Guam and/or the CNMI without a visa for a period of authorized stay not to exceed 45 days. Nonimmigrants use the Form I-736, Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Information, to determine eligibility to travel under the G-CNMI Visa Waiver Program. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to provide notice and assess the privacy risks associated with the G-CNMI Visa Waiver Program, including the newly created restricted sub-program CNMI Economic Vitality & Security Travel Authorization Program (EVS-TAP), and the newly established electronic Form I-736, which is used to grant travel authorization to nonimmigrants prior to their embarkation to Guam or the CNMI.
