The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has regulatory authority to publish regulations that establish requirements for the medical examination of aliens (immigrants, refugees, asylees, and parolees) before they may be admitted into the United States.
These regulations (42 CFR Part 34) are administered by the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The regulations include a communicable disease list that make aliens ineligible for entry into the U.S.
Revisions were necessary because the regulations, in effect since 1991, did not address emerging and re- emerging diseases in immigrant or refugee populations who are bound for the United States.
