DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE


Immigration and Naturalization Service


[INS No. 2248-02]


 
Notice Designating Additional Ports-of-Entry for Departure of 
Aliens Who Are Subject to Special Registration


AGENCY: Immigration and Naturalization Service, Justice.


ACTION: Notice.


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


SUMMARY: On August 12, 2002, the Attorney General published a final 
rule in the Federal Register at 67 FR 52584, to revise the special 
registration requirements for nonimmigrant aliens whose presence in the 
United States requires closer monitoring. The final rule requires that 
when a nonimmigrant alien subject to special registration departs from 
the United States, he or she must report to an Immigration and 
Naturalization Service (Service) inspecting officer at any port-of-
entry (POE), unless the Service has, by publication in the Federal 
Register, specified that nonimmigrant aliens subject to special 
registration may not depart from specific POEs. The requirement for an 
alien subject to special registration to report to the Service prior to 
departing the United States became effective on October 1, 2002.
    On September 30, 2002, the Service published a notice in the 
Federal Register at 67 FR 61352 listing POEs through which nonimmigrant 
aliens who have been specially registered may depart from the United 
States. This notice provides the public with an expanded list of ports 
through which nonimmigrant aliens who have been specially registered 
may depart from the United States. This list is provided in the 
affirmative as a list of approved POEs to assist the public.


DATES: This notice is effective March 3, 2003.


FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephen M. Dearborn, Assistant Chief 
Inspector, Immigration and Naturalization Service, 425 I Street, NW., 
Room 4064, Washington, DC 20536, telephone number: (202) 305-2970.


SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:


Nonimmigrant Aliens Subject to Special Registration Requirements


    Effective September 11, 2002, the Service regulations at 8 CFR 
264.1(f) provide that nonimmigrant aliens (other than those applying 
under section 101(a)(15)(A), or (G) of the Immigration and Nationality 
Act (Act) (8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(A), (G)) who meet certain criteria are 
subject to special registration, photographing and fingerprinting 
requirements. If a nonimmigrant alien who is registered, photographed, 
and fingerprinted upon arrival in the United States remains in the 
United States 30 days or more, he or she must report in person to a 
Service office to provide additional documentation that confirms that 
he or she is complying with the terms of his or her admission. Whether 
registered upon arrival in the United States or notified via 
publication in the Federal Register to report to a Service office for 
registration subsequent to admission, nonimmigrant aliens who are 
subject to special registration must be interviewed annually. Upon each 
change of address and where applicable, each change of educational 
institution or employment, a special registrant who remains in the 
United States for 30 days or more must also notify the Service within 
10 days of such change.
    Beginning on October 1, 2002, when a nonimmigrant alien subject to 
special registration departs the United States, he or she is required 
to report to an inspecting officer at the POE through which the alien 
is departing unless the Service has specified in a Federal Register 
notice that certain POEs may not be used for departure by special 
registrants. A nonimmigrant alien, subject to special registration, who 
fails to report his or her departure to an inspecting officer as 
required, may thereafter be presumed to be inadmissible to the United 
States.
    On September 30, 2002, the Service published a notice in the 
Federal Register notifying the public that not all ports may be used 
for departure by special registrants. In addition, the notice 
designated those POEs that could be used for final registration and 
departure by nonimmigrant aliens who are subject to special 
registration. The purpose of this notice is to expand the list of POEs 
that may be used for departure by special registrants.


Ports-of-Entry Which Are Not Authorized for the Departure of 
Nonimmigrant Aliens Subject to Special Registration


    Nonimmigrant aliens who are subject to special registration may not 
depart the United States from any POE listed in, or regarded as 
designated by 8 CFR 100.4(c)(2), or (c)(3), or any other point-of-
embarkation, other than those listed below.


Ports-of-Entry Designated for Final Registration and Departure by 
Nonimmigrant Aliens Subject to Special Registration


    The following POEs are specifically designated for final 
registration and departure by nonimmigrant aliens subject to special 
registration. Nonimmigrant aliens subject to special registration may 
not be examined by the Service and depart the United States through any 
location other than those listed below. On March 3, 2003 those POEs 
identified with an asterisk below, will be authorized to provide final 
registration and departure by nonimmigrant aliens subject to special 
registration. The other POEs listed without the asterisks were 
designated on October 1, 2002, and will continue to process special 
registrants for final registration and departure.

Notice of Where To Report for Final Registration and Departure


    Upon registration, whether registered at a POE upon admission to 
the United States or at a Service office subsequent to admission, each 
nonimmigrant alien subject to special registration will be issued an 
information packet that will list each POE authorized for departue and 
other instructions on how to comply with 8 CFR 264.1. This packet will 
also contain specific information regarding hours of operation, 
directions and contact numbers.
    Due to the limited availability of current resources, specifically 
departure staff and facilities, the Service must limit the POEs 
authorized for departure registration to effectively capture departure 
data. As more POEs become available to examine special registrants upon 
departure, the Service will designate the POEs by notice in the Federal 
Register and make the list available at Service offices and on its Web 
site at http://www.ins.usdoj.gov.


    Dated: January 31, 2003.
Michael J. Garcia,
Acting Commissioner, Immigration and Naturalization Service.
