The State Department reportedly will require other nations to provide in-depth data about visa applicants to help determine the people that pose a terrorist threat, the Gateway Pundit reports.
According to information obtained by Reuters, countries that do not comply with the agency’s new protocols within 50 days or will take actions to reject them could face travel sanctions.
On Wednesday, the U.S. sent a cable to all diplomatic posts with details of the vetting procedures under President Donald Trump’s revised executive order on March 6 that temporarily bans citizen from six Muslim-majority countries to enter the country.
The memo also directs nations to give “any other identity information” requested by the U.S. government for visa applicants, including biographic or biometric details.
“This is the first time that the U.S. Government is setting standards for the information that is required from all countries specifically in support of immigration and traveler vetting,” the cable said.
The new measure also expects nations to take back citizens deported by the U.S.
