118.2 Admissibility of transit aliens; conditions. Any alien arriving at a port of the United States and applying for admission as a transit alien may be temporarily admitted for a reasonable time not exceeding 60 days, for the purpose of such transit when it is satisfactorily established (a) that the alien is not an immigrant within the meaning of section 3 of the Immigration Act of 1924 (43 Stat. 154; 8 U. S. C. 203); (b) that he will depart from the United States within 60 days; (c) that he is not a member of any one of the excluded classes, except excludable aliens whose temporary admission has been authorized in advance by the Attorney General; and (d) that he does not seek such transit privilege for the purpose of evading or violating any of the provisions of the immigration laws.* (47 Stat. 5248 Ư.

S. C. 215)

“ time" (Act of December 26, 1920 (41 Stat. 1082; 8 U.S. C. 170)) shall be regarded in no instance as a period exceeding 30 days.
