The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that under its US-VISIT program, truck drivers who are permanent residents of Canada, but not Canadian citizens, will not have to be fingerprinted and photographed each time they travel between Canada and the U.S.

In a recent US-VISIT fact sheet, DHS says that while Customs and Border Protection officers always retain the discretion to refer a driver for US-VISIT processing as part of the inspection process, Canadian permanent resident drivers, including those in the FAST card program, will only have to report for US-VISIT processing when they renew their multiple-entry I-94 forms.
