DOS Expands Misrepresentation Rule to 90 Days

On September 1, 2017, the Department of State (DOS) revised its Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) guidance to consular officers on the term "misrepresentation" and how determinations of inadmissibility should be made. Under INA §212(a)(6), "Any alien who, by fraud or willfully misrepresenting a material fact, seeks to procure (or has sought to procure or has procured) a visa, other documentation, or admission into the United States or other benefit provided under this Act, is inadmissible."
