Students in jeopardy as US announces visa curbs

The Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools offering programs that are fully online for the fall semester, nor will Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the US, according to the announcement by the Department of Homeland Security’s Student and Exchange Visitor Program. Active students on F1 and M-1 (nonacademic or vocational studies) visa currently in the US enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction, to remain in lawful status, the announcement said.
