b. National Security – Coordination and Cooperation:
(1) You must cooperate with other elements and agencies of the mission or post to ensure the greatest effectiveness in promoting national security and ensuring only bona fide applicants receive visas.

(Previous location: 9 FAM 40.4 N12.3; CT:VISA2164 08202014)
b. Attorneys and Representatives of Record:
Each post has the discretion to establish its own policies regarding the extent to which attorneys and other representatives may have physical access to the consulate or attend visa interviews, taking into consideration such factors as a particular consulate’s physical layout and any space limitations or special security concerns. Whatever policies are set must be consistent and applied equally to all. For example, either all attorneys at a particular post must be permitted to attend consular interviews or all attorneys must be prohibited from attending interviews. See additional information on corresponding with attorneys and establishing attorneys as applicants’ representatives of record in 9 FAM
c. Media Contacts:
See 9 FAM 601.73 regarding correspondence based on media inquiries. See also 9 FAM 601.9 regarding visarelated public diplomacy and outreach.
d. Unethical Conduct:
See 9 FAM 602.13 for information on unethical conduct by intermediaries.
9 FAM 602.13
UNETHICAL CONDUCT BY INTERMEDIARIES
(Previous location: 9 FAM 40.4 N13.2; CT:VISA1310 09182009)
a. Attorneys and Intermediaries Based in the United States:
In cases where the principal consular officer believes that all or any part of the privileges (physical access to the Consulate, attending visa interviews, and/or correspondence on behalf of an applicant (see 9 FAM 603.29)) must be denied to any attorney or U.S.based representative because of unethical conduct or for other good reason, you must submit a cable slugged for "CA/VO; CA/VO/L/A; CA/VO/F; CA/FPP." The report must contain the reasons for denial of privileges and the proposed reply to the attorney or U.S.based representative, for the Department's final determination. In addition, if the individual in question has previously been the subject of a communication
from the Department regarding unethical or fraudulent activity, you must make reference to such communication.
(Previous location: 9 FAM 40.4 N13.1; CT:VISA1310 09182009)
b. Intermediaries Other than Attorneys and U.S. Agents:
All or part of the privileges mentioned above (physical access, presence at interviews, correspondence, etc.) may be denied to any intermediary, other than an attorney, who is an alien established abroad or to any category of alien
intermediaries (for example, consultants, travel agents, etc.), other than an attorney, whom you have reason to believe has been engaged in unethical or fraudulent conduct during the visa process. The post must report any such decision to the Department with an explanation. However, documents which have been requested from visa applicants may be accepted from an agent since an individual could easily mail the documents to you as having been submitted by the visa applicant.
c. Abusive Use of Visa Information:
See also 9 FAM 603.27 on abusive use of postsupplied information by local authorities and the release of
information in violation of U.S. law.
