Academic Honorarium for B Nonimmigrant Aliens

Federal Register, May 30, 2002, Page 37727


Immigration and Naturalization Service, Department of Justice


Proposed rule.


The Immigration and Naturalization Service (Service) is proposing to amend its regulation relating to the acceptance of academic honoraria by nonimmigrant aliens admitted to the United States as B visitors. This is necessary to implement changes to section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (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 status to accept honoraria in connection with usual academic activities.
