Visa: Authority of Consular Officer to Revocate Visa

A new rule was passed on April 27th 2011, by the Department of State broadening the power of consular officer to revocate or provisionally revocate visa. The changes in the rule extend the power of the consulate to the fully extent allowed by Section 41.122. After the change, consular officer may revoke visa at ANY TIME subsequent to issuance of visa. The revised Section 41.122(a) reads:

(a) Grounds for revocation by consular officers. A consular officer, the Secretary, or a Department official to whom the Secretary has delegated this authority is authorized to revoke a nonimmigrant visa at any time, in his or her discretion.

Futhermore, according Section 41.122(c), notice does not need to be given to alien whom visa was issued, “once the revocation has
been entered into the Department’s Consular Lookout and Support System (CLASS), the visa is no longer to be considered valid for travel to the United States.”
