Immigration Services

The Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T’s) Immigration Services program develops technologies that enhance the ability of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to efficiently adjudicate applications and petitions for immigrant benefits. These technologies also enhance the integrity of legal immigration IT systems, and provide trusted and timely immigration, employment, and identity information through a culture of efficiency and creativity.

Centers of Excellence

  • Borders, Trade, and Immigration Institute (BTI) – Led by the University of Houston, BTI develops technology-based tools, techniques, and educational programs for border management, immigration, trade facilitation, and targeting and enforcement of transnational borders.
