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

waiver of the two-year home-country physical presence requirement for 
exchange visitors who are foreign medical graduates.

Regulations Division, Visa Services, Department of State, Washington, 
DC 20522-0113.


SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Findings


Background


    On May 28, 1997, the USIA (which has now been incorporated by the 
Department of States) published an amendment to their regulations 
regarding requests for waivers of the two-year home-country physical 
presence requirement by interested U.S. Government agencies on behalf 
of exchange visitors who are foreign medical graduates. The rule 
amended 514.44 of 22 CFR (now 41.63). Paragraph (c)(4)(iii), as 
amended, contained an error in the U.S. Code citation.


Correction


    The regulation at 41.63(c)(4)(iii) contains a statement to be 
signed and dated by foreign medical graduate exchange visitors. The 
statement indicates that the medical graduate will incur penalties, as 
provided for under the provisions of ``18 U.S.C. 1101,'' for making 
false or misleading statements. The U.S.C. cite was incorrect, and 
should have been ``18 U.S.C. 1001''. This rule amends the U.S.C. 
citation.


List of Subjects in 22 CFR Part 41


    Nonimmigrants, Visas and passports.


    Accordingly, for the reasons set forth in the preamble, 22 CFR 41 
is corrected as follows:


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, 1181, 1201, 1202; Pub. L. 105-277, 
112, Stat. 2681 et seq.




Sec.  41.63  Two-year home-country physical presence requirement.


    2. In Sec.  41.63 (c)(4)(iii) change the U.S.C. cite to read ``18 
U.S.C. 1001.''


    Dated: December 12, 2002.
Maura Harty,
Assistant Secretary for Consular Affairs, Department of State.
