Original Date AnnouncedJune 26, 2020
DOS publishes a final rule removing a defunct regulation that had provided an immigrant visa classification to U.S. citizen women who lost their U.S. citizenship due to marriage to an alien, or to a U.S. citizen who acquired another citizenship, between 1907 and 1922. The Department notes that the last special immigrant visa in this category was issued in 1998, and "it is unlikely that any person eligible for this category is still living."
