DHS/USCIS/PIA-057 National Appointment Scheduling System


The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) uses the National Appointment Scheduling System (NASS), a cloud-operated system, to schedule appointments for biometric collections at Application Support Centers (ASCs). The Canada Appointment Scheduler was created to allow individuals seeking an immigration benefit with Canada to schedule a biometrics collection appointment at an ASC. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is being updated to account for the collection, use, maintenance, and dissemination of personally identifiable information (PII) from individuals who are seeking a Canadian immigration benefit and who schedule a biometric collection appointment at an ASC.
