1 The selected candidates must qualify and meet the 12 guidelines of the Homeland Security Presidential Directive by obtaining a favorable background investigation and an approved Access Control Plan before the beginning of the internship. Requests for Foreign Nationals from Designated Countries will be forwarded to and approved by Headquarters' Office of International and Interagency Relations (OIIR) before final approval by the Center's International Visit Coordinator (IVC). The Designated Country Foreign visitor must begin the process early enough to allow sufficient time prior to the visit for pre-visit identity vetting to be conducted and completed by the center IVC. The processing of profiles in IdMAX for the vetting of Designated Country Foreign Nationals can take up to 45 days to process prior to the arrival date at the Marshall Space Flight Center (where applicable). After the vetting process for an DCFN badge, the subsequent NASA HQ approvals are required by the HQ's Security Office/Desk Officer, Export Control, and IVC.
