SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 19, 2000, the Department amended section 42.11 of Part 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations by revising the “SK” immigrant category to include certain NATO employees, their spouses and unmarried children. [See 65 FR 20903.] These NATO aliens were added to the special immigrant category by section 421(a) of Public Law 105-277 and are properly classified as “SN” special immigrants. The Department added the new “SN” categories to the immigrant visa classification table in its rule published on June 18, 2001 [66 FR 32740], but failed to remove the NATO aliens from the SK category.

The Department's June 18, 2001 rule [66 FR 32740] also amended section 41.12 of Part 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations to add a new nonimmigrant “U” classification to implement section 107 of Pub. L. 106-386. The rule contained errors in the entries for the “U” visa classification symbols. The legal citations for these categories should have read 101(a)(15)(U)(i) for U1 and 101(a)(15)(U)(ii) for U2.

This rule corrects sections 41.12 and 42.11 to read as follows:
