Amending Consular Regulations and Forms
|Executive Order 2619-A→|
Paragraph 160 of the Consular Regulations is hereby amended to read as follows:
- Verification of American passports and visa of foreign passports.—A diplomatic officer or a consular officer, including a consular agent, may verify regularly issued American passports by indorsing thereon the word "Good" in the language of the country and affixing to the indorsement his official signature and seal. A diplomatic officer shall verify an American passport only when there is no American consulate established in the city where the mission is situated, or when the consular officer is absent, or the Government of the country refuses to acknowledge the validity of the consular verification. Whenever a passport without signature is presented to be verified the holder should be required to sign it before it is verified by a diplomatic or consular officer. No verification of a passport shall be made after its validity has expired. No fee shall be collected for verifying an American passport or, when instructed to do so by the Department of State, for visaing a foreign passport.
Consular Forms Nos. 10 and 11 are amended to read as follows:
Sections 8 and 9 of the Tariff of United States Consular Fees are hereby amended to read as follows:
- Issuing a passport—Form No. 9, fee $1. (No fee shall be collected for extending a passport.)
- Verifying an American passport (Form No. 10) or visaing a foreign passport (Form No. 11), no fee.
