DEPARTMENT OF STATE

22 CFR Part 41

[Public Notice 4315]
RIN 1400-AA97

 
Documentation of Nonimmigrants Under the Immigration and 
Nationality Act, as Amended--Waiver of the Nonimmigrant Visa Fees for 
Members of Observer Missions to the United Nations

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This rule makes final the Department's interim rule published 
on August 29, 2000. The interim rule extended the waiver of the visa 
application and issuance fees to B-1 visa applicants coming to the 
United States as participants in their U.N. observer missions.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This rule is effective March 20, 2003.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pam Chavez, Legislation and 
Regulations Division, Visa Office, Room L603-C, SA-1, Department of 
State, Washington, DC 20522-0106, (202) 663-1206 or e-mail at 
chavezpr@state.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 29, 2000, the Department published 
an interim rule [65 FR 52306] that extended the waiver of the visa 
application and issuance fees to persons who are members of observer 
missions to the United Nations who apply as B-1 applicants to enter as 
participants in their U.N. observer missions. Previously, the 
regulation granted the waiver only to aliens coming in various 
diplomatic classifications, including those related to international 
organizations. However, aliens coming to the United Nations in an 
observer capacity on B-1 visas were not granted the waiver.

Final Rule

    The interim rule amended the Departments' regulations at 22 CFR 
41.107(c)(1). Since the Department does not feel it necessary to amend 
the regulations as published in the interim rule, the interim rule is 
adopted as a final rule without change.

    Dated: February 5, 2003.
Maura Harty,
Assistant Secretary for Consular Affairs, Department of State.
