Before submitting a FOIA request, we encourage you to use Inquiry Routing & Information System (IRIS) to see if the information you seek is already posted on our Web site. IRIS provides guidance on where to find VA related information.
There are no special forms required to submit a request, however Department of Veterans Affairs requires that your FOIA request:
Be in writing and signed by the person submitting the request. VA does not accept requests by email. Only requests received by postal mail or facsimile will be accepted.
|Reasonably describe the records so that it may be located with a reasonable amount of effort.|
|State your willingness to pay applicable fees or provide a justification to support a fee waiver.|
|Include a daytime telephone number in case we need to contact you.|
