Are foreign student visas cancelled?


“Foreign students on student visas will be barred from the U.S. this fall if their educational institution operates under an online-only course model amid the coronavirus pandemic”, Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Monday. The rules apply to people with F-1 visas. This means 373,000 international students could get kicked out of the U.S.


Two days after the policy was announced on July 6, Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) filed the first of a litany of lawsuits seeking to block it. Because of national outrage, Trump undid the rule and said it would no longer require foreign students to attend in-person classes during the coronavirus pandemic in order to remain in the country.

The loss of international students could have cost universities millions of dollars in tuition and jeopardized the ability of U.S. companies to hire the highly skilled workers who often start their careers with an American education. .
