Business Travel in North America The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) will require all U.S. subjects, Canadians and nationals of Bermuda and Mexico to have a visa or other acknowledged secure archive to enter and re-enter the U.S. ( www.travel.state.gov )      Dec. 31, 2006 - Applied to all air and ocean go to or from Canada, Mexico, Central and S.

Business Travel in North America WHTI Update notwithstanding augmenting the due date for execution of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative to in any event June 1, 2009, it addresses issues, for example, the ID of adequate secure records, a forceful state funded training program and the need to guarantee proper innovation, similar to card perusers, is accessible at all area and ocean fringe intersections. These key focuses are in accordance with TIAC\'s proposals in its accommodation to the Department of Homeland Security in October. On the off chance that the Senate passes the change, there is no sureness that the WHTI due date will be postponed:  the Coleman revision will confront the same obstacles as the Leahy-Stevens correction passed last week.  (See TIAC Talk Issue Focus , May 18, 2006) Meanwhile, when gotten some information about the U. S. security arrangement, President George W. Shrub repeated his backing for the law requiring everybody entering the nation to show an international ID or an extraordinary fringe card, yet demonstrated that he is focused on working with Canada to guarantee the distinguishing proof cards will be perfect and address the issues of both nations.

Business Travel in North America I can\'t discover anything complete on any Canadian government or US government site, and the daily papers are oddly quiet on the issue . The main agreement is that the proposed alteration would push back usage of the WHTI for year and a half, until June 1, 2009.  Counting in reverse, that would imply that no, it would not move back the January 1, 2007 date of execution for air and sea.  My sources: Canadian Border Services Agency: http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/organization/whti/2006-05-19-e.html Windsor Star:  http://www.canada.com/windsorstar/news/story.html?id=d4919c8b-7b13-43c5-8ef7-0513c6366ccf BTNOnline: http://www.btnonline.com/businesstravelnews/features/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1002539506 TIAC: A correction affirmed by the U.S. Senate on May 17, 2006, has been generally reported in the media as flagging a deferral in the January 1, 2008 usage of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative. The alteration, which was added to the Senate\'s migration change bundle, was a bipartisan activity, moved by Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Republican Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska.  The Stevens-Leahy Amendment, as it is known, tries to postpone usage of the WHTI until June 1, 2009, by basically correcting Section 7209(b)(1) of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act to peruse "June 1, 2009" rather than "January 1, 2008". While it is conceivable that this improvement could prompt a deferral, there is in no way, shape or form any confirmation that one will be acquired, given the way the U.S. administrative framework works .  MeetingsNet Extra: In other travel-related news, the U.S. Senate voted a week ago to pass an alteration to a Senate migration charge that would push back a necessity that individuals crossing via land into the U.S. from Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico, must hold identifications or fringe crossing cards. The prerequisite, at first booked for usage December 31, 2007, would become effective on June 1, 2009, gave the revision survives further migration change wrangling between the House and the Senate. American Immigration Lawyers Association:  Senator Leahy (D-VT) presented an alteration (no. 4018) in the interest of Senator Stevens (R-AK) and others that would change area 7209(b)(1) of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 to augment the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) for year and a half, from January 1, 2008 to June 1, 2009. As foundation, this activity requires all U.S. nationals, Canadians, natives of Bermuda and Mexico, to have an international ID or other acknowledged secure travel report when entering the United States by January 1, 2008. The Leahy/Stevens revision was consented to on a voice vote.
