I’m approaching my 5 year re-investigation for an MBI Public Trust as a contractor for a civilian federal agency. In the last 5 years, I was able to take a lot of time off in-between projects and traveled a lot (30+ countries), including a 6-month period of traveling non-stop. It was all regular tourist travel, and I never visited any “trouble” countries, e.g. those on the gov’t travel ban list and such.
Based on what I’ve seen on this forum, extensive foreign travel is not necessarily a concern, isn’t it? But I do have related questions:
I’m not sure I can remember every single trip and country, and I’m worried I may inadvertently miss one or two on the form. Do they pull the actual US customs departure/arrival records during the investigation to verify all my trips?
Are there any circumstances where the information I provide on the MBI form is shared with someone in my company? I wouldn’t be thrilled if my bosses saw the list of all my travels. I don’t like to advertise my travel habits to my co-workers to avoid any negative feelings or unnecessary internal publicity (e.g. not everyone can afford that type of lifestyle and such)
