DEPARTMENT OF STATE

22 CFR Part 41

[Public Notice 4183]
RIN: 1400-AA91

 
Documentation of Nonimmigrants Under the Immigration and 
Nationality Act, as Amended

AGENCY: Bureau of Consular Affairs, Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule adopts as final the Department's interim rule 
creating the nonimmigrant visa classification, ``S'', for certain alien 
informants and witnesses.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 4, 2002.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pam Chavez, Legislation and 
Regulations Division, Visa Services, Department of State, Washington, 
DC 20522-0106, 202-663-1206.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

What Is the Authority for Issuing Nonimmigrant ``S'' Visas?

    On January 24, 1996, the Department added a new section 41.83 at 22 
CFR (see 61 FR 1837) to implement section 130003 of the Violent Crime 
Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (Public Law 103-322). This Act 
amended section 101(a)(15) of the Immigration and Nationality Act by 
adding a new category of nonimmigrants for aliens determined by the 
Attorney General to have critical and reliable information concerning a 
criminal organization or enterprise. The program, as originally 
enacted, was to terminate on September 12, 1999. The program was 
extended for an additional two years by Public Law 106-104 on November 
13, 1999 and was made permanent by Public Law 107-45 on October 1, 
2001.

Were Comments Solicited in the Department's Interim Rule?

    The Department's interim rule (61 FR 1837) solicited comments from 
the public to be received by March 25, 1996. No comments were received.

Final Rule

    Since no change is made to the interim regulation, the Department 
does not believe it necessary to reprint the regulations in this final 
rule.

PART 41--[AMENDED]

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

    2. Accordingly, the Department adopts as final the interim rule at 
61 FR 1837, as published in the Federal Register on January 24, 1996.

    Dated: October 21, 2002.
George C. Lannon,
