It was not possible to complete 30 days of public comment before February 24, 2020. This information collection is intended to align the Department’s standards with those of DHS, to avoid situations where a consular officer will evaluate a visa applicant’s circumstances and conclude that the visa applicant is not likely at any time to become a public charge, only for a DHS officer to evaluate the same individual when he or she seeks admission to the United States on the visa and finds the individual inadmissible on public charge grounds under the same facts. 3. Methodology The DS–5540 will be available online in fillable PDF format. Visa applicants will download the completed form and submit the completed DS–5540 to the consular officer, or to the Department with other documentation in advance of the interview. Carl C.
