DOS Extends Special Immigrant Visas for Afghans

The Department of State announced that its authority to issue special immigrant visas (SIVs) to certain Afghan nationals under the Afghan Allies Protection Act of 2009, as amended, has been extended.  In addition to the 3,000 visas for Afghan principal applicants originally allocated for use in fiscal year 2014, another 1,000 SIVs may be issued until December 31, 2014.  The program will end on that date unless Congress further extends it.
