SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 18, 2001, the Department amended section 41.12 of part 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations by adding the new nonimmigrant “T” classifications and the new nonimmigrant U classifications. The new T1 classification symbol would be used to classify victims of a severe form of trafficking in persons and the T2 classification for the spouse, child and parent of the T1. The rule also created two new U visa classification symbols; the U1 classification symbol for victims of criminal activity and the U2 for the spouse, child or parent of a U1.

The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), however, has decided there should be separate visa classifications for the spouses, the children and the parents of the T1 and U1 principals. This rule corrects section 41.12 by revising the T2 and U2 classification symbols and creating additional classification symbols T3, T4, U3, and U4.

This rule also amends the N8 and N9 categories to include dependents of the SN categories (NATO special immigrants) to comply with the provisions of Pub. L. 105-277. This rule corrects section 41.12 to read as follows:
