DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

Immigration and Naturalization Service

8 CFR Part 212

[INS No. 2020-99]
RIN 1115-AF81

 
Update of the List of Countries Whose Citizens or Nationals Are 
Ineligible for Transit Without Visa (TWOV) Privileges to the United 
States Under the TWOV Program

AGENCY: Immigration and Naturalization Service, Department of Justice.

ACTION: Interim rule; delay of effective date.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the memorandum of January 20, 2001, from 
the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, entitled 
``Regulatory Review Plan,'' published in the Federal Register on 
January 24, 2001, this action temporarily delays for 60 days the 
effective date of the rule entitled ``Update of the List of Countries 
Whose Citizens or Nationals Are Ineligible for Transit Without Visa 
(TWOV) Privileges to the United States under the TWOV Program'', 
published in the Federal Register on January 5, 2001, at 66 FR 1017. 
The temporary 60-day delay in effective date is necessary to give 
Department of Justice officials the opportunity for further review and 
consideration of new regulations, consistent with the Assistant to the 
President's memorandum of January 20, 2001.

DATES: The effective date of the ``Update of the List of Countries 
Whose Citizens or Nationals Are Ineligible for Transit Without Visa 
(TWOV) Privileges to the United States under the TWOV Program'', 
published in the Federal Register on January 5, 2001, at 66 FR 1017, is 
delayed for 60 days, from February 5, 2001, to a new effective date of 
April 6, 2001.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard A. Sloan, Director, Policy 
Directives and Instructions Branch (HQPDI), Immigration and 
Naturalization Service, 425 I Street, NW, room 4034, Washington DC 
20536, telephone number (202) 514-3048.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To the extent that 5 U.S.C. section 553 
applies to this action, it is exempt from notice and comment because it 
constitutes a rule of procedure under 5 U.S.C. section 553(b)(A). 
Alternatively, the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Service) 
implementation of this action without opportunity for public comment, 
effective immediately upon publication today in the Federal Register, 
is based on the good cause exceptions in 5 U.S.C. section 553(b)(B) and 
553(d)(3). Seeking public comment is impracticable, unnecessary and 
contrary to the public interest. The temporary 60-day delay in 
effective date is necessary to give Department of Justice officials the 
opportunity for further review and consideration of new regulations, 
consistent with the Assistant to the President's memorandum of January 
20, 2001. Given the imminence of the effective date, seeking prior 
public comment on this temporary delay would have been impractical, as 
well as contrary to the public interest in the orderly promulgation and 
implementation of regulations. The imminence of the effective date is 
also good cause for making this action effective immediately upon 
publication.

Dated: January 29, 2001.
Mary Ann Wyrsch,
Acting Commissioner, Immigration and Naturalization Service.
