DHS/USCIS/PIA-058 System Electronic Registration Approval (SERA)


September 25, 2015. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), System Electronic Registration Approval (SERA) is a web application that provides the California Service Center with the ability to automatically approve Temporary Protected Status (TPS) re-registration cases. SERA retrieves TPS re-registration cases from the Computer Linked Application Information Management System 3 (CLAIMS 3), validates each application, and categorizes cases for automatic approval or manual adjudication. With the implementation of SERA, USCIS gains efficiency in its processing procedures. USCIS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment to describe how SERA collects, uses, and maintains personally identifiable information.
