The White House, June 27, 1920.
By virtue of the authority vested in me by "An Act to Prevent in Time of War Departure From and Entry Into the United States Contrary to the Public Safety," approved May 22, 1918, I, Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States of America, hereby amend Executive Order of August 8, 1918, "Governing the Issuance of Passports and the Granting of Permits to Depart From and Enter the United States," by the following provisions:
1. Hereafter, persons who by any statute or proclamation may be defined as hostile or enemy aliens, and who desire to depart from any port of the United States for any destination, shall not, unless the Secretary of State so orders, be required to obtain a permit of this Government prior to such departure. Such persons will be permitted to depart upon presentation of passports issued, renewed or visaed by representatives of their respective Governments within one year prior to the proposed date of departure, accompanied by certificates of compliance with the income tax law.
2. No passports or permits to depart from or enter the United States shall be required of persons traveling between points in the continental United States and points in Newfoundland, St. Pierre and Miquelon Islands; provided that the above exception has no application to persons traveling en route through the countries named to or from the United States.
