by Heather Hauswirth

The Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program will top discussions Tuesday (Guam time) between Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, House Natural Resources Committee chairman Nick Rahall and the Department of Homeland Security's secretary.  The two requested the meeting with Secretary Janet Napolitano to discuss the implementation of Public Law 110-229 in the region.

Under the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008, the immigration laws of the U.S. will be extended to the CNMI and provides for a new visa waiver program for travel to Guam and the CNMI, replacing the existing program.  Beginning November 28 of this year, Homeland Security and Border Patrol will begin inspecting international travelers arriving in the CNMI.
