Original Date AnnouncedJuly 7, 2020
DOS seeks public comment regarding proposed revisions to Form DS-2054, Medical Examination for Visa or Refugee Applicant, and associated worksheets, Forms DS–3030, DS–3025, and DS–3026. These forms are completed by panel physicians for refugees and noncitizens and are submitted to the consular officer. The forms collect medical information necessary to determine whether refugees or visa applicants have medical conditions affecting the applicant’s eligibility for a visa, or affecting the public health and requiring treatment. DOS is proposing to amend the name of the collection, to reflect that some nonimmigrant visa applicants are required to undergo medical examinations. DOS has also made numerous revisions to Form DS-2054 and associated worksheets, predominantly relating to the medical results collected, such as adding more lines to describe mental health disorders and use of substances. The specific changes proposed are set forth in detail in the supporting statement submitted to OMB. The comment period for this proposed revision ends on September 8, 2020.
