The USA Homeland Security / Department of State patents are:

 

  1. Method and system to issue an electronic visa of a foreign visitor at a country's foreign consular premises.

    ABSTRACT:

    This invention integrates with a country's customs and immigration system to issue an electronic visitor's visa, and to validate periodically, electronically a visitor's visa within the country's borders. A computer-encoded visa card is created and issued to the visitor at the country's overseas consulate. Pertinent visa application information is embedded in the issued card. Cryptographic technology is used with the card to maintain privacy, as well as to reduce fraud and other misuse. The card is used as the visitor's official identification document whilst in the country. During the visitor's stay, at specified intervals, the visitor registers with self-service kiosks, which are placed at various locations within the country. The kiosks are securely integrated with the customs and immigration database.



  2. Method and system to validate periodically the visa of a foreign visitor during the visitor's in-country stay.

    ABSTRACT:

    This invention integrates with a country's customs and immigration system to keep a periodic check on visitors within the country's borders. A smartcard is created and issued to the visitor at the visitor's Port of Entry. Pertinent immigration information is embedded in the smartcard. Cryptographic technology is used with the smartcard to maintain privacy, as well as to reduce fraud and other misuse. The smartcard is used as the visitor's official identification document whilst in the country. During the visitor's stay, at specified intervals, the visitor registers with automated kiosks (i.e. a Visitor-Visa Automated Teller Machines--ATMs), which are placed at various locations within the country. The ATM kiosks are securely integrated with the customs and immigration database. On exiting the country, the smartcard is returned and is recycled with a new visitor.
