DANES Mærkesager

Dobbelt statsborgerskab snart en realitet

Efter seminaret om dobbelt statsborgerskab, som Danes Worldwide afholdt sammen med EuropaHuset i slutningen af april, er en ændring af de danske regler kommet et skridt nærmere.

Den 17. maj offentliggjorde Venstres folketingsgruppe, at partiet nu helhjertet støtter ønsket om dobbelt statsborgerskab. Partiet har tidligere været splittet omkring dette spørgsmål, men har altså nu besluttet at bakke op om denne vigtige Danes Worldwide mærkesag.

I den forbindelse blev generalsekretær Anne Marie Dalgaard interviewet til DR Nyheder, hvor hun bl.a. sagde: ”Statsborgerskab er så vigtig en del af ens identitet, at det svarer til at skulle vælge mellem sin far eller sin mor � eller sine to børn”.

 

Derudover havde Anne Marie Dalgaard også et indlæg om dobbelt statsborgerskab i Jyllands-Posten den 29.maj. Du kan læse indlægget her

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is partnering with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for TSA PreCheck™, an initiative that allows eligible passengers to qualify for expedited screening at participating airports.

U.S. citizens, who are members of a CBP Trusted Traveler program, including Global Entry, SENTRI, and NEXUS are automatically eligible to participate and receive expedited screening benefits for domestic travel through the TSA PreCheck™ initiative. TSA PreCheck™ benefits include keeping shoes, light outerwear and belts on, keeping laptops in their cases, and leaving the 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in one’s carry-on during screening through TSA security checkpoints.

Members interested in participating in TSA PreCheck™ through their Trusted Traveler program membership must enter their PASS ID into the ‘Known Traveler’ field when booking a flight reservation or saving their PASS ID to their airline’s frequent flyer profile. Members can find their PASS ID either online by accessing their GOES account, or on the back of their membership card in the top-left corner.

When traveling on one of the TSA PreCheck™ participating airlines, CBP Trusted Traveler members should remember to provide the airline with their full name, date of birth, and PASS ID exactly as it appears in their CBP Trusted Traveler program online account to ensure they are properly considered for TSA PreCheck™ .
