DHS/USCBP RIN: 1651-AA97 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Waiver of Passport and Visa Requirements Due to an Unforeseen Emergency 
Abstract: This rule proposes to reinstate a 1996 amendment to 8 CFR 212.1(g) regarding a waiver of documentary requirements for nonimmigrants seeking admission to the United States. The 1996 amendment allowed the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to waive passport and visa requirements due to an unforeseen emergency while preserving its ability to fine carriers for unlawfully transporting aliens to the United States who do not have a valid passport or visa. On November 20, 2009, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit invalidated the 1996 amendment based on procedural grounds. This DHS proposal would reinstate the 1996 amendment and make some additional technical amendments. DHS and the State Department are acting jointly in this matter.
