U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) proposes to amend its regulations to incorporate additional commercial air carrier requirements that would enable CBP to determine, before an aircraft’s departure from the United States or from a foreign port or place, whether each passenger is traveling with valid, authentic travel documents before the passenger boards the aircraft. The proposed regulations would also require commercial air carriers to transmit additional data elements through CBP’s Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) for all commercial aircraft passengers arriving, or intending to arrive, in the United States, “to support border operations and national security and safety.”
