OI 238.2 Form I-421 agreements.
So that the list appearing in 8 CFR
.2(b) may be supplemented, the regional counsel shall notify the Instructions Officer, Central Office.
A Form I-421 agreement shall not be approved when immigration officers are not stationed or are not readily available to conduct inspection at the port in foreign contiguous territory or adjacent islands through which the transportation line desires to transport its United States-destined passengers.
The fact that a transportation line has embarked or desired to embark immigrants destined to the United States via foreign contiguous territory or adjacent islands on a particular voyage shall not be considered, in and of itself, as a sufficient basis for regarding the line's request for an agreement to be a "special situation" within the meaning of 8 CFR
.2(a) warranting the approval of an appropriate agreement with the line.
When it appears that the approval or denial of an agreement may affect another region, the region considering the transportation line's request shall consult with the other region which may be affected before a decision is made.
