Impact(s): Equipped with information furnished by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Government is able to prevent individuals who have committed crimes in America and/or obtained counterfeit travel documents from receiving visas. This important capability that helps the U.S. Government protect its citizens will improve as currently valid visas expire and are replaced with visas that meet the new biometric standards.
