E.O. 12958: N/A
SUBJECT: IRS Form 9003 No Longer Required
Neither USCIS nor IRS is collecting IRS Form 9003 ("Additional Questions to be Completed by All Applicants for Permanent Residence in the United States") from those applying for entry at POEs with an IV or DV. NVC and KCC do not include IRS Form 9003 in the Packet 4 mailing. Effective immediately, consular officers no longer need to collect this form from IV/DV applicants and include it in the packet for USCIS. Applicants should not be refused 221(g) for lack of an IRS Form 9003. FAM note 42.33, PN5.2 has been corrected to omit Form 9003 from the list of documents to be included in the IV packet.
