Don't know about the US or other parts of the world, but RVR isn't reported in Canadian metars unless conditions call for it.. from what I remember, below 6000 feet will be reported depending on conditions (ie rain, snow, blowing snow, fog, mist etc) ..I may be wrong on the 6000..don't have the regs in front of me.Chris

Some US airports have an approach which has a RVR visibility category (usually 2,000', compared with 1/2 mile for no RVR). So, RVR offers a continued approach to land with less vis.Bruce.
