DOS Request for Comments on Proposed Changes to Forms DS-160 and DS-156, Including Collection of Social Media Information

DOS 60-day notice and request for comments on proposed changes to the electronic version (Form DS-160) and the paper version (Form DS-156) of the Application for Nonimmigrant Visa. One of the proposed changes would combine the two information collections into a single collection and discontinue the OMB control number for Form DS-156. One of the proposed new questions requires the applicant to provide identifiers for specified social media platforms during the preceding five years. Other questions seek five years of previously used telephone numbers, email addresses, and international travel; whether the applicant has been deported or removed from any country; and whether specified family members have been involved in terrorist activities. Comments are due 5/29/18. (83 FR 13807, 3/30/18)
