Important - Advisory Notes

Upon entering a US Port of Entry:  

You will be asked to present documentation to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Inspections Officer.  Before you leave the inspections area, examine the ink stamping on your passport page to ensure you have not been given tourist status.  Badges cannot not be issued to individual holding Waiver for Tourist (WT) or B-2 (tourist visa status.  If you receive a WT or B-2 ink stamping in your passport, politely explain you are in the U.S. to conduct business at US federally-funded laboratory which requires you hold a business status (Waiver for Business (WB) or B-1).  You may ask for a supervisor if the CBP Inspections Officer does not understand or is unable to make the correction in your passport.
