FOIA Request Form

Use this form to make an Electronic FOIA (E-FOIA) request (You may also use this form to make a Privacy Act request.) The use of this form is voluntary. If you choose to submit a FOIA request electronically, you must complete the fields marked with an "*". If you do not enter accurate or required information, we may be unable to fulfill your FOIA request. To learn how we use the information you provide, please read our Privacy Policy.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) excludes federal agencies from its definition of persons permitted to make FOIA requests [see 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(3)(A) and 5 U.S.C. § 551(2)]. To avoid confusion as to whether employees are requesting information through FOIA in their personal or official capacities, it is the preference of the ICE FOIA Office that ICE employees submitting FOIA requests do so using their personal email accounts instead of their official email accounts. Moreover, since use agency letterhead is generally limited to official agency business, it is the preference of the FOIA office that employees refrain from submitting FOIA requests on agency letterhead.
