DEPARTMENT OF STATE

22 CFR Part 42

[Public Notice 4313]

 
Documentation of Immigrants--Elimination of Extended Visa 
Validity Benefits Under Section 154 of the Immigration Act of 1990

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

[[Page 13628]]

SUMMARY: This rule eliminates the extended visa validity benefit for 
certain aliens who qualified under section 154 of the Immigration Act 
of 1990, (IMMACT 90). Section 154 of IMMACT 90 permitted certain aliens 
resident in Hong Kong to extend the validity of their immigrant visa up 
to January 1, 2002. Since this extension can no longer be granted, the 
Department is removing this provision from the regulations.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 20, 2003.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pam Chavez, Legislation and 
Regulations Division, Visas Services, Department of State, Washington, 
DC 20520-0106, by fax to 202-663-3898 or by e-mail to 
chavezpr@state.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Aliens Entitled to Extended Visa Validity Under Section 154 of IMMACT 
90

    On January 30, 1991, the Department published a proposed rule (56 
FR 3427) which amended 22 CFR 42.72 by adding a new paragraph (e) which 
entitled certain residents of Hong Kong who qualified for issuance of 
an immigrant visa under section 124 of IMMACT 90 to request extended 
visa validity until January 1, 2002. The Department finalized this rule 
(56 FR 32322) and it took effect on July 16, 1991. Since this benefit 
no longer exists, the Department is amending the regulation by removing 
paragraph (e).

List of Subjects in 22 CFR Part 42

    Aliens, Immigrants, Passports and Visas.

    In view of the reasons set forth above, 22 CFR part 42 is amended 
as follows:

PART 42--[AMENDED]

    1. The authority citation for part 42 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 8 U.S.C. 1104.


Sec.  42.72  [Amended]

    2. Remove paragraph (e) of Sec.  42.72.

    Dated: January 30, 2003.
