DOJ/INS RIN: 1115-AF97 Publication ID: Spring 2003 
Title: Academic Honorarium for B Nonimmigrant Aliens 
Abstract: The Immigration and Naturalization Service is proposing to amend its regulations relating to the acceptance of academic honoraria by nonimmigrant aliens admitted to the United States as a B visa visitor status. This is necessary to implement changes to section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act made by the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998. The amendment outlines the proposed procedures necessary for a nonimmigrant alien visiting the United States in valid B visa status to accept honoraria in connection with usual academic activities.
