Repeal of Civil Aviation RegulationsRule2015-3120012/10/2015State DepartmentIn accordance with Executive Order 13563 of January 18, 2011, which addresses agency review of existing regulations, including those that may be outmoded or ineffective, the Department of State is repealing our regulations on ci … In accordance with Executive Order 13563 of January 18, 2011, which addresses agency review of existing regulations, including those that may be outmoded or ineffective, the Department of State is repealing our regulations on civil aviation. These regulations, which relate to civil aircraft accidents abroad and were promulgated in 1957, are outdated and duplicative of other authorities, including subsequent statutes, regulations, and Department of State guidance, that specify detailed, modern, comprehensive, and effective procedures for dealing with civil aircraft disasters abroad.repeal-of-civil-aviation-regulationsFR-Doc-2015-31200

Waivers of the Worldwide Availability Requirement for Foreign Service CandidatesRule02-1758507/12/2002State DepartmentThis Final Rule amends the regulations on the appointment of Foreign Service Officers to allow the Director General (DG) of the Foreign Service, or the Director General's delegatee, to review the case of a Department of State Foreign S … This Final Rule amends the regulations on the appointment of Foreign Service Officers to allow the Director General (DG) of the Foreign Service, or the Director General's delegatee, to review the case of a Department of State Foreign Service candidate who has been denied an unlimited medical clearance for assignment worldwide to determine whether or not it is in the best interest of the Service to appoint the candidate despite the medical disqualification. This decision, as to whether or not to grant a waiver of the Foreign Service worldwide availability requirement, was previously made by a committee created solely for that purpose. The shifting of this decision to the Director General, or the Director General's delegatee, in no way alters the rights or interests of any parties, nor does it alter the substantive criteria by which a decision whether or not to waive the worldwide availability requirement will be made. As with the committee's decisions at present, the decisions of the Director General, or the Director General's delegatee, will be final and will not be subject to further appeal. In addition, while candidates must still be medically cleared for full overseas duty, the Department of State no longer considers the medical condition of eligible family members for pre-employment purposes. References to previous practices in this regard are therefore being removed as are references to the procedures of the former United States Information Agency.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2002/07/12/02-17585/waivers-of-the-worldwide-availability-requirement-for-foreign-service-candidatesFR-Doc-02-17585
Schedule of Fees for Consular Services; Finance and Accounting; and Passports and VisasRule00-640903/16/2000State DepartmentThis direct final rule replaces the existing fee charged for each passport issued, that is refunded when a passport is not issued, with a non-refundable fee charged for each application filed for a passport. Accordingly, the Depar … This direct final rule replaces the existing fee charged for each passport issued, that is refunded when a passport is not issued, with a non-refundable fee charged for each application filed for a passport. Accordingly, the Department of State will refund the passport application fee only when the fee has been collected in error. The Department will not refund the fee paid for a passport application when, after processing, it is determined that the applicant will not be issued a passport. Nor will the Department refund a passport application fee to the executor or administrator of the estate of the deceased bearer of an unused passport, or refund a passport application fee to any person issued a passport who has been refused a visa by a foreign government. The rule provides, however, that a person, whose passport application is denied, may have the application reconsidered without being required to pay an additional application fee by submitting adequate documentation that overcomes the reason for denial within 90 days from the date of the denial notice.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2000/03/16/00-6409/schedule-of-fees-for-consular-services-finance-and-accounting-and-passports-and-visasFR-Doc-00-6409
