A Department of State cable gives further instructions to consulates on handling visa applications from persons affected by the change to 41.112(d), regarding the automatic extension of visas. [DOS cable 2002 State 50158 (March 14, 2002)]

This change ends the revalidation of expired visas of aliens who apply for a visa while outside the U.S. and entering from contiguous territories. Posts are now instructed to collect the I-94, along with placing the "Application Received" stamp in the passports of such applicants as instructed by cable 2002 State 50158. If the I-94 cannot be collected, a second "Application Received" stamp should be placed in the passport, next to the most recent visa that alien was admitted on. This is to take place unless a new visa is issued at the time of application. AMDOC#: 200206042
