e-SAFE is the new online system that will allow for electronic filing of Form I-192, Application for Advance Permission to Enter as a Nonimmigrant, and Form I-212, Application for Permission to Reapply for Admission into the United States After Deportation or Removal. Citizens of specified visa exempt countries—Canada, Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia and the Marshall Islands—who are nonimmigrants and have been found inadmissible will be able to apply for a waiver online. Applicants will be able to view their application status, submit additional information if requested, and ultimately learn the outcome of their online waiver application through this system.

CBP has added additional e-SAFE Ports of Entry where applicants can complete the biometrics portion (fingerprint and photograph) of the waiver process for electronic I-192 and I-212 applications completed through e-SAFE. List of designated e-SAFE Ports of Entry.
