Students will be allowed into the United States if their institutions confirm that they plan to take at least one course of lectures in a full-time format.
Foreign students who only enrolled in U.S. institutions will be barred from entering the U.S. if all classes at these facilities are online in the fall, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement said. This was announced on Friday, July 24, TASS reports.
As noted in the document, foreign students will be able to enter the country on valid visas, if their educational institutions confirm that they plan to hold at least one course of lectures in a face-to-face format.
The new rules will not apply to foreigners previously enrolled in U.S. educational institutions. Also, international students studying in the United States will not have to leave the country, as stated in the statement released earlier this month, if in the autumn all classes in their educational institutions in the upcoming semester in connection with the pandemic will be held online.
