#US: Policy To Limit Stay Of Nigerian, Other Students In The Works


By Amaechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – A policy proposal by the United States Government to limit the duration of foreign students, including Nigerians that apply for visa, is currently being considered, according to a statement issued on Thursday by the Department of Homeland Security.

The proposal intends to add changes to visas for students, exchange visitors and foreign media.

If the new rule is approved, it could translate to affected students not getting four-year visas for four-year courses in the U.S. International students could apply to extend their visas beyond the limits, but the rule would severely tighten the requirements for an extension, the D.H.S said.
