Students will be admitted to the States if their educational institutions confirm that they plan to take at least one course of lectures in a full-time format.
Foreign students who have just enrolled in American educational institutions will be banned from entering the United States if all classes at these institutions are held online in the fall due to the pandemic, the US Department of homeland security's immigration and customs enforcement service said. This, on Friday, July 24.
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 conduct at least one course of lectures in a full-time format.
The new rules will not apply to previously enrolled foreigners in US educational institutions. Also, foreign students studying in the United States will not have to leave the country, as stated in a statement published at the beginning of the month, if all classes in their educational institutions in the upcoming semester in connection with the pandemic will be held online in the fall.
