"Class B Req. ATTN. of USPHS at POE"

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I just received my visa, it's sooo beautiful and I'm so excited!!! :energy::jest: :jest:

In the annotation area, there's the sentence I mentioned in the title. Does that mean I have to go somewhere/talk to someone at POE? Does the US Public Health Service have a representative at POE?

I just have a non-infectious, non-contagious, benign thyroïd condition, so what's the fuss about?

The Class A or B Condition Stamp: All aliens with a Class A condition or a Class B condition,

including tuberculosis, not infectious; and Hansen’s disease (leprosy), not infectious. These aliens should

have a stamp imprinted on the face of their visa (OF-155A) as follows:

Consular officers should stamp the OF-155A when an immigrant has a medical condition of public

health concern, but sometimes this step is inadvertently omitted. The inspector should check all

OF-157’s, regardless of whether the “Attention PHS” stamp is present.

http://www.cdc.gov.tw/public/Data/9111917301071.pdf

Class B condition is a non-infectious medical condition. See starting page 5.

Processing Aliens with Medical Conditions: When Quarantine Station personnel are not available

to process aliens with these medical conditions, retain a copy of the OF-157. On the reverse side,

write the alien’s U.S. address, sponsor’s name and address, arriving flight and date, port of entry, and

the INS inspector’s name. A photocopy of the alien’s visa (OF-155A) is satisfactory in lieu of

transcribing this information on the reverse of the OF-157, provided that the address is correct on the

OF-155A and that the flight number and date of arrival are recorded on the OF-155A before the

photocopy is made. The OF-155A and/or OF-157 with the requested information should be given,

mailed, or sent by fax to the appropriate Quarantine Station.

Thanks, so what I understand from this link is that all immigrants with a class B condition should have this annotation on their visa. I'm pretty sure my POE won't have PHS personel, since it's a small airport with little international traffic.

Has anyone here entered with this mention on their visa? Did the process at POE take longer?
