Title: Visa Waiver Program Carrier Agreement.
OMB Number: 1651-0110.
Form Number: CBP Form I-775.
Abstract: 8 U.S.C. 1223(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides for the necessity of a transportation contract. The statute provides that the Attorney General may enter into contracts with transportation lines for the inspection and administration of aliens coming into the United States from a foreign territory or from adjacent islands. No such transportation line shall be allowed to land any such alien in the United States until and unless it has entered into any such contracts which may be required by the Attorney General. Pursuant to the Homeland Security Act of 2002, this authority was transferred to the Secretary of Homeland Security.
The Visa Waiver Program Carrier Agreement (CBP Form I-775) is used by carriers to request acceptance by CBP into the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This form is an agreement whereby carriers agree to the terms of the VWP as delineated in Section 217(e) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1187(e)). Once participation is granted, CBP Form I-775 serves to hold carriers liable for the transportation costs, to ensure the completion of required forms, and to share passenger data. Regulations are promulgated at 8 CFR Part 233, Contracts with Transportation Lines. A copy of CBP Form I-775 is accessible at: http://forms.cbp.gov/pdf/CBP_Form_I775.pdf.
Current Actions: This submission is being made to extend the expiration date with no change to information collected or to CBP Form I-775.
Type of Review: Extension (without change).
Affected Public: Businesses.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 400.
Estimated Number of Annual Responses per Respondent: 1.
