Supporting Documentation Requirements for Protected Persons
Some protected persons may not be able to provide some of the required documentation in support of an OSAP application (e.g., marriage certificate, signatures from family members still residing in the home country). Reasons for the unavailability of the supporting documentation may include, but are not limited to:
- political conditions have resulted in the documents being destroyed;
- documents being unavailable to protected persons and/or their family members because of race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group or political opinion.
The FAA may reconsider the OSAP application without all of the required supporting documentation as long as the protected person’s request for review includes an explanation of why some or all of the supporting documentation is unavailable.
Supporting documentation reviews cannot be considered for a protected person who is experiencing delays in accessing his or her Protected Persons Status Document or who is experiencing delays with mail service.
