Proposed Project

Statements in Support of Application for Waiver of Inadmissibility Under the Immigration and Nationality Act (OMB Control No. 0920-0006)--Extension--National Center for Preparedness, Control and Detection of Infectious Diseases (NCPDCID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Section 212(a)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states that aliens with specific health related conditions are ineligible for admission into the United States. The Attorney General may waive application of this inadmissibility on health-related grounds if an application for waiver is filed and approved by the consular office considering the application for visa. CDC uses this application primarily to collect information to establish and maintain records of waiver applicants in order to notify the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services when terms, conditions and controls imposed by waiver are not met. CDC is requesting approval from OMB to collect this data for another 3 years. CDC estimates that mailing costs per respondent will be $80.00 per year. The annualized burden for this data collection is 167 hours.
