Permanent Residents to be Fingerprinted When Entering U.S.

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Dec 21, 2008

NEW YORK -- The U.S. Homeland Security Department announced Thursday that non-U.S. citizens including permanent residents will be asked to provide fingerprints and other biometrics when entering the United States. The Sing Tao Daily reports that the Department started the US-VISIT program in 2003, which asks for fingerprints and biometrics from visa holders. The program has expanded to cover almost all non-U.S. citizens including green card holders when they enter the country by air, sea or land. The new regulation will go into effect Jan. 18, 2009. Non-U.S. citizens under 14 years old or older than 79 are exempted. The Homeland Security Department said the program will make the U.S. immigration system more complete and improve public security in the country.
