The P–3 category, along with the other categories of cases that have access to USRAP, is outlined in the annual Report to Congress on Proposed Refugee Admissions, which is submitted on behalf of the President in fulfillment of the requirements of Section 207(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1157), and authorized by the annual Presidential Determination on Refugee Admissions. The P–3 category is available to certain family members of qualifying ‘‘anchors’’ (persons already admitted to the U.S. as refugees or who were granted asylum in the United States, including persons who may now be lawful permanent residents or U.S. citizens). Qualifying family members of U.S.-based anchors include spouses, unmarried children under age 21, and parents. Eligible P–3 nationalities are determined on an annual basis by the President. In order to access the USRAP through P–3, an applicant must have an Affidavit of Relationship (AOR) filed on his or her behalf by an eligible anchor. The AOR also informs the anchor that DNA evidence of all claimed parentchild relationships between the anchor relative and parents and/or unmarried children under 21 is required as a condition of access to P–3 processing; it further informs the anchor that the costs of DNA testing will be borne by the anchor or his or her family members who may apply for access to refugee processing, or their derivative beneficiaries, as the case may be. Successful applicants may be eligible for reimbursement of DNA test costs. Methodology This information collection currently involves the limited use of electronic techniques. An anchor may complete an AOR at any local office of a Resettlement Agency (RA) that has a cooperative agreement with the Department of State to assist refugees who have been resettled in the United VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:51 Feb 18, 2020 Jkt 250001 States. In order to file an AOR, an anchor must be at least 18 years of age and have been admitted to the United States as a refugee or granted asylum in the United States no more than five years prior to the filing of the AOR. The AOR is available electronically, is completed electronically with the assistance of RA staff, and is submitted electronically by RA staff to a Department of State-contracted facility, where it is uploaded into the USRAP case management system. In addition, the RA local office prints a copy for the respondent’s ink signature, then submits the signed form to the RA headquarters. Andrew Veprek, Deputy Assistant Secretary.
