To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8527 technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.

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 three years. Based on a review of the number of waivers processed by CDC over the last three years, CDC does not request a change in the amount of burden. Respondents must mail these documents to CDC, and this entails an additional cost. CDC estimates that respondents will spend approximately $15 per year on postal fees, for a total of $3,000 annually.
