Department of State November 2, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Exchange Visitor Program-Sanctions and Terminations
Document Number: E7-21522
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-11-02
Agency: Department of State
The Department is amending its regulations to add to and modify the existing actions for which the Department may sanction a sponsor. The change in the regulations will streamline the review process to offer sanctioned sponsors the procedural due process rights equal to those that the Administrative Procedure Act guarantees. In addition, the Final Rule eliminates summary suspension and modifies program suspension to halt the activities of a sponsor that has committed a serious act of omission or commission which has or could have the effect of endangering the health, safety, or welfare of an exchange visitor, or damage the national security interests of the United States.
