DEPARTMENT OF STATE

[Public Notice 5601]

 
Notice of Effective Date for Implementation of Five-Year 
Professor and Research Scholar Exchange Program

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: By final rule adopted May 19, 2005, 70 FR 28815, the 
Department of State amended its regulations and extended the permitted 
program duration from three to five years for professor and researcher 
participants in the Exchange Visitor Program. This rule also 
established clear eligibility requirements for repeat participation as 
a professor or researcher in the Exchange Visitor Program following a 
two-year bar. Implementation of these changes was delayed until the 
Department of Homeland Security could complete modifications to the 
Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) necessary to 
permit these changes to be reflected in SEVIS. By SEVIS broadcast on 
October 6th, 2006, The Department of Homeland Security announced its 
ability to facilitate these changes effective November 4, 2006.
    Accordingly, as of November 4, 2006, current and future professor 
and researcher program participants will be eligible for five years of 
program participation as provided for in the final rule. These 
participants will also be subject to the eligibility requirements for 
repeat participation set forth in the final rule. Requirements 
governing initial eligibility for participation as a professor or 
researcher are unchanged.
    The final rule published May 19, 2005 also established a new ``G-
7'' administrative classification for certain program sponsors. The 
Department will contact directly those sponsors eligible for the 
classification. No action, inquiry, or request regarding this 
classification is necessary on the part of existing sponsors. This 
certification will be published in the Federal Register.

    Dated: October 25, 2006.
Stanley S. Colvin,
Director, Office of Exchange Coordination and Designation, Department 
of State.
