Special Registration Procedures

The Immigration Service has suspended the blanket “re-registration” requirements of the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS). The program required aliens from more than 26 countries to undergo special registration upon entry to the U.S. It also required those aliens who were already in the U.S. to report to an immigration office for registration 30 days after entry and one year after initial entry to the U.S. The 30 day and one year “re-registration” has been suspended effective December 2, 2003.

Individuals are still required to report to the U.S. Immigration & Citizenship Service (USCIS) when exiting the U.S. Individuals must report in at a designated airport at the final port of departure from the U.S. (List of Ports authorized for Entry & Departure Registration).

Remember that it is your responsibility to keep informed of your Special Registration requirements.
