What is QIV and NQIV on manifest?

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

What is QIV and NQIV on manifest?

Post by giannattasio » 07 Jul 2010, 02:26

On the manifest in column 12, Immigration Visa, Passport Visa or Reentry Permit Number (prefix number with QIV, NQIV, RP or PV, give section of act invloved)
Anyone know what the these prefixes stand for? RP must be reentry permit but I can't find anything on what the others mean. This is on manifests in the 1940's I'm looking at. Thanks.

QIV = Quota Immigrant Visa
NQIV = Non-quota Immigrant Visa
PV = Passport Visa
RP = Reentry Permit
