Jess T. Ford, John Brummet, & Judy McCloskey. In FY 2001, State Dept. consular officers issued 7.6 million visas to citizens of other countries seeking to enter the U.S. temp’y. for bus., tourism, & other reasons. Because all 19 of the 9/11 terrorist hijackers were issued visas, strengthening the visa function as an antiterrorism tool has taken on great significance. This report assesses: how the visa process operated prior to 9/11; & what changes have occurred since then to strengthen the process as a screen against terrorists. Analyzed the factors influencing visa decisions, including the policies & guidance for, & pressures on, consular officers; the U.S. government’s process for checking visa applicants against available security & intelligence data; & staffing & resource issues. Charts & tables.
