22 U.S. Code § 4316 - Application of travel restrictions to personnel of certain countries and organizations
prev | next
(a) Requirement for restrictions
The Secretary shall apply the same generally applicable restrictions to the travel while in the United States of the individuals described in subsection (b) of this section as are applied under this chapter to the members of the missions of the Soviet Union in the United States.
(b) Individuals subject to restrictions
The restrictions required by subsection (a) of this section shall be applied with respect to those individuals who (as determined by the Secretary) are—
(1) the personnel of an international organization, if the individual is a national of any foreign country whose government engages in intelligence activities in the United States that are harmful to the national security of the United States;
(2) the personnel of a mission to an international organization, if that mission is the mission of a foreign government that engages in intelligence activities in the United States that are harmful to the national security of the United States; or
and who are not nationals or permanent resident aliens of the United States.
The Secretary, after consultation with the Director of Central Intelligence and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, may waive application of the restrictions required by subsection (a) of this section if the Secretary determines that the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States so require.
For purposes of this section—
(1) the term “generally applicable restrictions” means any limitations on the radius within which unrestricted travel is permitted and obtaining travel services through the auspices of the Office of Foreign Missions for travel elsewhere, and does not include any restrictions which unconditionally prohibit the members of missions of the Soviet Union in the United States from traveling to designated areas of the United States and which are applied as a result of particular factors in relations between the United States and the Soviet Union. 
(2) the term “international organization” means an organization described in section 4309 (b)(1) of this title; and
 So in original. The period probably should be a semicolon.
