Regulatory Findings

Background

On May 28, 1997, the USIA (which has now been incorporated by the Department of States) published an amendment to their regulations regarding requests for waivers of the two-year home-country physical presence requirement by interested U.S. Government agencies on behalf of exchange visitors who are foreign medical graduates. The rule amended 514.44 of 22 CFR (now 41.63). Paragraph (c)(4)(iii), as amended, contained an error in the U.S. Code citation.

Correction

The regulation at 41.63(c)(4)(iii) contains a statement to be signed and dated by foreign medical graduate exchange visitors. The statement indicates that the medical graduate will incur penalties, as provided for under the provisions of “18 U.S.C. 1101,” for making false or misleading statements. The U.S.C. cite was incorrect, and should have been “18 U.S.C. 1001”. This rule amends the U.S.C. citation.
