[Public Notice 4173]

 
Extension of Certain Foreign Passports Validity

    In accordance with section 212(a)(7)(B) of the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (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, the governments of 
certain countries (and other competent authorities) have agreed that 
their passports will be recognized as valid for the return of the 
bearer for a period of six months beyond the expiration date specified 
in the passport, thereby effectively extending the validity period of 
the foreign passport an additional six months beyond its expiration 
date, see 22 CFR 41.104(b).
    This public notice adds Romania to the list of competent 
authorities that have provided the necessary assurances to the 
Government of the United States. This notice also adds Bosnia-
Herzegovina, Croatia, Guatemala and Guyana to the list. These countries 
have had agreements in place for some time, but were inadvertently 
dropped from the list in previous notices. The updated list of 
competent authorities that have made the necessary assurances is shown 
below:
