EXEMPTIONS

ARE THERE EXEMPTIONS TO THE OBLIGATION TO REGISTER?

Yes.  An agent of a foreign principal may be exempt from FARA’s registration obligations if the agent’s activities fall within one of the following exemptions:

  • Diplomatic officers and diplomatic staff
  • Certain registered foreign officials who are not U.S. citizens and are not public-relations counsels, publicity agents, or information-service employees
  • Bona fide commercial activity and other activity not serving predominantly a foreign interest
  • Humanitarian fundraising
  • Religious, scholastic, academic, fine arts, or scientific pursuits
  • Certain activities relating to the defense of foreign governments vital to the United States defense
  • Legal representation of a disclosed foreign principal before any court or law or agency of the United States government
  • Properly registered parties under the Lobbying Disclosure Act (in no case where a foreign government or a foreign political party is the principal beneficiary will this exemption be recognized)

See 22 U.S.C. § 613; 28 C.F.R. §§ 5.300-5.307.

Back to Top

DO I NEED TO CONTACT THE FARA UNIT TO QUALIFY FOR AN EXEMPTION?

It is the responsibility of a person or entity potentially subject to FARA to determine whether FARA applies to its activities or whether the activities are exempt from registration under FARA.  But a party may wish to submit a request for an Advisory Opinion pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 5.2 to inquire as to whether the activities are exempt from registration requirements under FARA. 

The burden of establishing the availability of an exemption rests upon the party claiming it.  See 28 C.F.R. § 5.300.

Back to Top

WHAT IS THE DIPLOMATIC EXEMPTION?

A party may qualify for the diplomatic exemption if the party is a duly accredited diplomatic or consular officer of a foreign government that is recognized by the U.S. Department of State, while the officer is engaged exclusively in activities that are recognized by the U.S. Department of State as being within the scope of the functions of such officer.  See 22 U.S.C. §§ 613(a)-(c); 28 C.F.R. §§ 5.301-5.302

Back to Top

WHAT IS THE COMMERCIAL EXEMPTION?

The “commercial” exemption addresses activities undertaken on behalf of foreign principals that are private and nonpolitical activities in furtherance of the bona fide trade or commerce of such foreign principal or not serving predominantly a foreign interest.  Such activities on behalf of a state-owned enterprise may qualify for this exemption.  However, the exemption will not apply if such activities are directed by a foreign government or political party, or they directly promote the public or political interests of the foreign government or political party.

See 22 U.S.C. § 613(d); 28 C.F.R. § 5.304.

Back to Top

WHAT IS THE RELIGIOUS, SCHOLASTIC, ACADEMIC, SCIENTIFIC OR FINE ARTS EXEMPTION?

The exemption for activities in furtherance of “bona fide religious, scholastic, academic, or scientific pursuits, or of the fine arts” is not available where the person or entity engages in political activities for or in the interests of his foreign principal.  The activities must be limited to only those mentioned for the exemption.  22 U.S.C. § 613(e); 28 C.F.R. § 5.304.

Back to Top

WHAT IS THE EXEMPTION PERTAINING TO FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS THAT ARE VITAL TO THE DEFENSE OF THE UNITED STATES?

This exemption applies to activities taken on behalf of a foreign government “the defense of which the President deems vital to the defense of the United States.” 22 U.S.C. § 613(f).  There are currently no foreign governments so designated. 

Back to Top

WHAT IS THE EXEMPTION FOR LEGAL REPRESENTATION?

In general, legal services, including advocacy, provided to a disclosed foreign principal in connection with a judicial or administrative proceeding before a court or agency of the United States government are exempt from FARA.  Additionally, legal advice provided to a foreign principal in connection with such proceeding or generally with respect to the interpretation of the law, or the application of the law to the foreign principal, is likewise exempt from registration. 

However, legal services and advocacy whose aim is to attempt to influence or persuade any U.S. Government official or agency employee with respect to formulating, adopting, or changing the domestic or foreign policies of the United States or with reference to the political or public interests, policies, or relations of a government of a foreign country or foreign political party, do not qualify for the exemption, and registration would be required. 

See 22 U.S.C. § 613(g); 28 C.F.R. § 5.306.
