DEPARTMENT OF STATE

Bureau of Consular Affairs

22 CFR Parts 41 and 42

[Public Notice 3719]

Visas--Visa Classification Symbols: Corrections

AGENCY: Bureau of Consular Affairs, Department of State.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: The Department of State (the Department) is publishing this 
document to correct errors in two final rules published in the Federal 
Register. The final rules revised the ``SK'' immigrant category and 
added a new nonimmigrant ``V'' classification.

DATES: This rule takes effect on July 23, 2001.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pam Chavez, Legislation and 
Regulations Division, Visa Office, (202) 663-1206.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 19, 2000, the Department amended 
section 42.11 of Part 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations by revising 
the ``SK'' immigrant category to include certain NATO employees, their 
spouses and unmarried children. [See 65 FR 20903.] These NATO aliens 
were added to the special immigrant category by section 421(a) of 
Public Law 105-277 and are properly classified as ``SN'' special 
immigrants. The Department added the new ``SN'' categories to the 
immigrant visa classification table in its rule published on June 18, 
2001 [66 FR 32740], but failed to remove the NATO aliens from the SK 
category.
    The Department's June 18, 2001 rule [66 FR 32740] also amended 
section 41.12 of Part 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations to add a 
new nonimmigrant ``U'' classification to implement section 107 of Pub. 
L. 106-386. The rule contained errors in the entries for the ``U'' visa 
classification symbols. The legal citations for these categories should 
have read 101(a)(15)(U)(i) for U1 and 101(a)(15)(U)(ii) for U2.
    This rule corrects sections 41.12 and 42.11 to read as follows:

List of Subjects

22 CFR Part 41

    Aliens, Nonimmigrants, Passports and visas.

22 CFR Part 42

    Aliens, Immigration, Passports and visas.

    Accordingly, 22 CFR part 41 is corrected by making the following 
correcting amendments:

PART 41--VISAS: DOCUMENTATION OF NONIMMIGRANTS UNDER THE 
IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT, AS AMENDED

    1. The authority citation for part 41 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 8 U.S.C. 1104; Pub. L. 105-277, 112 Stat. 2681 et 
seq. 

    2. In the table in Sec. 41.12, correct the entries for U1 and U2 to 
read as follows:

Sec. 41.12  Classification symbols.
