    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.

    The Special Registration program is officially over.

    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.

    Do they need to go for the next year registration? I was told to visit immigration office next year too? Any news on this aspect of registration? Thanks

    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...
