Additional non-resident aliens will be allowed to apply for a TWIC if they are working in a job that requires them to have unescorted access to a maritime facility. The fee structure has also been altered. The definition of secure areas at facilities located in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands is changed to account for non-resident workers who are not required to obtain US work visas. The changes come into effect immediately. 72 Fed. Reg. 55043 (HK Law).
