06.11.2009 June 2009 Immigration Update: New U.S. Passport Requirements; Delay in E-Verify; Advanced Parole Reminder; H-1B Count Update; and Green Card Delays
REMINDER: Customs and Border Patrol Reminds Travelers that New Document Requirements Went into Effect June 1. CBP reminds travelers that under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) new document requirements went into effect on June 1, 2009 for entry into the United States at land or sea ports. The rules require most U.S. citizens entering the United States at sea or land ports of entry to have a passport, passport card, or other travel document approved by the Department of Homeland Security. Travelers should apply for approved travel documents now, as it can take several weeks to receive a document that will comply with new requirements.
