A Notification of Arrival Transmission (NAT) advises the sponsor and/or Service Provider Organization (SPO), and the Port of Entry (POE) of the date of arrival and flight details of the refugee, and of pertinent details such as the names of sponsors, onward travel arrangements to final destinations, and special needs (e.g., wheelchair required), etc. NATs are required to maintain accurate statistics and are sent for all refugees. They include:
point of origin;
port of entry;
date of arrival;
special requirements; and
identification of special programs such as OYW or blended initiative.
