US President Donald Trump has sought to introduce a time-line to a long-awaited Biometric exit programme in the US, seeking regular updates on its progress.
According to a draft version of a White House executive order obtained Wednesday by The Huffington Post, Trump plans to expedite the completion of a biometric entry-exit tracking system for all visitors to the U.S. and require in-person interviews for all individuals seeking a non-immigrant visa.

To speed up the implementation of a system, he wants the secretary of Homeland Security to submit periodic reports on the progress of the programme.
There must be a report on biometric exit every 100 days until it is implemented, and every 180 days after it is operational, states the Trump executive order.
The order also instructs the secretary of state to "immediately suspend the Visa Interview Waiver Program," and requires interviews of all non-immigrant visa seekers.
