Proposed Changes

DHS proposes to add the following question to ESTA and to Form I-94W:

"Please enter information associated with your online
presence—Provider/Platform—Social media identifier." It will be an
optional data field to request social media identifiers to be used for
vetting purposes, as well as applicant contact information. Collecting
social media data will enhance the existing investigative process and
provide DHS greater clarity and visibility to possible nefarious
activity and connections by providing an additional tool set which
analysts and investigators may use to better analyze and investigate the

Current Actions: This submission is being made to extend the expiration
date with a change to the information collected as a result of adding a
question about social media to ESTA and to Form I-94W, as described in
the Abstract section of this document. There are no changes to the
burden hours or to the information collected on Form I-94, or the I-94
Web site.

Type of Review: Revision.
