Department of State Amends Foreign Affairs Manual to Change Longstanding 30/60 Day Rule to 90 Day Rule

The US Department of State (“DoS”) has updated its Foreign Affairs Manual, which serves as guidance to consular officers adjudicating visa applications abroad and is widely relied upon by US Citizenship and Immigration Services for US-based adjudications as well. The change impacts the so-called “30/60-day rule,” eliminating this and replacing it with a new, “90-day rule.” The Section of the Foreign Affairs Manual (“FAM”) impacted is 9 FAM 302.9-4(B)(3).
