The Department has determined that Comoros “economic citizen” passports are not valid for visa-issuance purposes. Those who have obtained “economic citizen” passports (ECPs) do not have the right to return to Comoros or their country of origin and may be Stateless. Since the Comoran economic citizenship travel document does not give the holder a right to reside in the Comoros, it does not meet the requirement in INA 212(a)(7)(B)(i) that a passport permit the alien to return to the Comoros (or another country) after a stay in the United States. Applicants may need to present other supporting documents to establish and their nationality and identity to the satisfaction of the consular officer. During the course of the interview, officers should pay close attention to where the applicant was born (since only those born in Comoros are likely considered Comoran citizens), or through examining supporting documents presented, such as a Comoran national ID cards. As the Comoran government does not issue national ID cards to economic travel document holders, these applicants will not be able to legally obtain them. Nonimmigrant visa applicants with a only a Comoros economic citizenship travel document, including K1 visa recipients, will require a waiver of the passport requirement per guidance in 9 FAM 41.113 PN2.2. Given that these applicants are ineligible for a visa under INA 212(a)(7)(B)(i), Customs and Border Protection will need to concur with waiving the passport requirement before the visa can be issued on a DS-232. Consular officers should contact the consular section in Embassy Antananarivo with any questions regarding the Comoros economic citizen travel documents.
