[Public Notice 3562]

 
Certain Foreign Passports Validity

In accordance with section 212(a)(7)(B) of the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(7)(B)), a nonimmigrant alien 
who makes an application for a visa or for admission into the United 
States is required to possess a passport that: (1) Is valid for a 
minimum of six months beyond the date of the expiration of the initial 
period of the alien's admission into the United States or contemplated 
initial period of stay and, (2) authorizes the alien to return to the 
country from which he or she came, or to proceed to and enter some 
other country during such period. Because of the foregoing requirement, 
certain competent authorities have agreed that their passports will be 
recognized by them as valid for the return of the bearer for a period 
of six months beyond the expiration date specified in the passport. In 
determining the application

[[Page 8837]]

of (INA) 212(a)(7)(B), the validity period of an unexpired passport 
shall be six months after the expiration date set forth in the 
passport. Although already on the list, bearers of Nicaraguan 
passports, until now, have been limited to diplomatic and official. 
This public notice adds Nicaragua to the list of competent authorities 
that have provided the necessary assurances to the Government of the 
United States. The updated list of competent authorities that have made 
the necessary assurances is shown below:
