US To Withdraw Visas For Foreign Students:- The United States of America said that they would not allow the foreign students to stay in the country if their classes are moved online in the fall because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the non-immigrant students on F-1, M-1 visas who are set to attend online classes are not allowed to remain in the United States. All these students should depart the country or just get transferred to a school that offers full-time classes which allow them to attend in-person.
All those who violate the rules will face immigration consequences. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement also said that it will not issue any visas to the students enrolled in schools that are fully online for the fall. The US Customs and Border Protection will also not permit such students to enter into the United States. F-1 visas are issued for academic coursework and M-1 visas are issued for vocational coursework. Most of the colleges in the USA are yet to announce their schedule plans for the fall semester.
With the growing number of coronavirus cases and deaths, most of the colleges are in plans to offer online classes. Some of the universities will allow the students to return back to the campus but the classes would be conducted online.
