Tourist Information


Protecting your Privacy

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has implemented significant procedures to protect your privacy including the information you provide in connection with travel to the United States. 

Additional information is available on how DHS protects your Passenger Name Records (PNR) and how you may access those records as follows:


The Department of Homeland Security maintains a single point of contact for all individuals, regardless of citizenship or country of residence, who have inquiries or seek resolution regarding difficulties they experienced during their travel screening at transportation hubs—like airports and train stations—or crossing U.S. borders. 

This includes being delayed or denied boarding on an aircraft, or being identified for additional screening when entering or exiting the country.  Applications can be filed with the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program(DHS-TRIP).



There is a great deal of useful U.S. travel information on the Internet, and a preliminary excursion in cyberspace will serve you well when you are ready to begin your journey in the real world.
