Alien seamen arriving at & port in the United States, sent forward by the owners to join a foreign vessel in such port as members of the crew, may present passport visas, transit certificates, or group transit certificates, issued by a consular officer in accordance with the classification specified in section 3 of the Immigration Act of 1924 (ch. 190, 43 Stat. 153, 154) under such regulations as the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Labor may prescribe.

III Masters of vessels of all nationalities sailing for a port of the United States must submit for visa a list of all the alien members of the vessel's crew to the American consular officer at the port from which the vessel commences its voyage. If there is no American consular officer stationed at that port, the crew list should be submitted at the first port of call (if the vessel touches at any other port) where an American consular officer is located. The visa of a shipping commissioner in the Canal Zone shall be accepted as equivalent to the visa of an American consular officer, but consular agents are not authorized to visa crew lists. This paragraph does not apply to members of crews of vessels sailing between ports of the United States and ports of Canada, Newfoundland, St. Pierre, and Miquelon and not touching at ports of other countries, no documentation being required of such persons.

When a vessel sails from a port where no American consular officer is stationed, but which is within a few hours' reach by mail of an American consulate, so that unreasonable delay and serious loss would not result from referring the crew list to such consulate, it should be referred thereto for visa.

An alien seaman whose name is not included in a visaed crew list arriving at a port of the United States shall not be allowed to land except upon the permission of the Secretary of State.

The Secretary of State and the Secretary of Labor are hereby authorized to make such additional rules and regulations, not inconsistent with this order, as may be deemed necessary for carrying out the provisions of this order and the statutes mentioned therein.

This order shall take effect immediately and shall supersede Executive Order No. 4648, of May 13, 1927, entitled “Documents Required of Bona Fide Alien Seamen Entering the United States as Passengers" [p. 237], and section II (5) of Executive Order No. 5869, of June 30, 1932, entitled “Documents Required of Aliens Entering the United States" [p. 244].21 DOCUMENTS REQUIRED OF ALIENS ENTERING THE PHILIPPINE
