          Actually the Special Registration had to do with the War on Iraq. Now that we actually went to war and "won" it, there's no need for stupid political moves like Special Registration Programme.

            DHS Announces New 'U.S. VISIT System' for Travelers as the Department Marks Its First 100 Days

            U.S. Department of Homeland Security
            Office of the Press Secretary
            April 29, 2003
            For Immediate Release

            Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge announced the launch of the new U.S. VISIT system as he discussed the Department's first 100 days. In a speech in Washington, the Secretary outlined the Department's plan to create a new entry-exit system backed by 21st century technology. The U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indication Technology system (U.S. VISIT) is designed to make entering the U.S. easier for legitimate tourists, students and business travelers, while making it more difficult to enter the U.S. illegally through the implementation of biometrically authenticated documents.

            Drawing heavily on developing technologies and scientific capabilities, the system will utilize a minimum of two biometric identifiers, such as photographs, fingerprints or iris scans, to build an electronic check in/check out system for people coming to the U.S. to work, study or visit. The U.S. VISIT system will replace the currently existing NSEERS program, integrate the SEVIS program, and encompass the Congressional requirements of the automated entry exit system.

            The U.S. VISIT System is a critical new border security and enforcement tool that will capture point of entry and exit information on visitors. The system will be in its first phase of operation at international air and sea ports of entry by the end of 2003.

                    I have no confirmation on this, but one article I read said that though registration is over--those who registered last year will still have to re-register every year. I hope someone will confirm or deny this. Where do we get the stuff that was confiscated from us? Like passports, credit cards, driver's licenses...

                      Who cofiscated these stuff? Did they give a receipt for those, if yes than u can call that office & ask if u can get these back because u need these stuff every day. Don't be shy call them today. Its ur right, understand.

                        Oh I called, begged for a receipt, had my lawyer call... wrote letters. They kept it as a deterrent, though they didn't keep me. They wanted to keep me from working and filling out any other paperwork I think. I just wonder when will they release it? And do I have to go back? Recently I was asked by the INS to prove I registered, and I said, well you have my passport with my stamp in it, and they guy said, oh we do, do we? You have proof? They refused to give me a receipt, said they didn't have to.
