Dear All,
 DOS updated its FAQs concerning the automatic extension of NIEs for 12 months. In those FAQs, DOS confirms that Customs and Border Protection will recognize the validity of all NIEs approved by DOS.
 
DOS posted guidance on its website that confirms earlier reports of NIEs issued in the last 12 months being automatically extended for 12 months from the date of approval, and for multiple entries, as long as they are used for the purpose under which they were granted. The extension applies to NIEs for travelers subject to Presidential Proclamations 9984 (China), 9992 (Iran), 10143 (Schengen Area, U.K., Ireland, Brazil, and South Africa), and 10199 (India).
