Determining citizenship and obtaining travel documents for detained individuals is often a cumbersome process which slows the deportation of foreign nationals held in ICE/ERO custody.  The eTD system streamlines the process with participating countries by electronically providing biographic and biometric information used to determine citizenship and/or nationality for individuals.  The system also allows consular officials to review and edit electronic travel documents, which can be signed using a signature pad.  Documents can be printed locally by ICE/ERO personnel at detention facilities or field offices.
