US Administration Cancels Proposal for Study in USA Time Limits

Trump Era Proposal for Time limits for Students from India

The US administration under President Joe Biden has recently announced its intention to cancel a proposal put in place by the former president of the United States, Donald Trump, for putting limits on the student visas for international students to a maximum of four years for research scholars from India and other countries all over the world.

The Department of Homeland Security of the USA has published this decision, early this week and has also added that it is planning to drop the proposal for limits on visa applications for the USA from journalists.

The DHS further stated that it has got around 32,000 comments from the public, out of which nearly 100 percent were not happy with the proposal that was made during the Trump administration for adding curbs to research students' time limits in the previous year and, as a result, was planning to withdraw the changes that were proposed as the changes were expected to limit access to immigration benefits for deserving candidates.

By maintaining the existing regulations for visas, students who are planning to study in the USA on their F and J category visas will be able to keep their visas and live in the United States, as long as they continue with their studies.

Moreover, journalists too can continue to live with their L visas as long as they keep their jobs in the United States. If the proposed changes had been accepted and put into place, then students who study abroad in the United States would have been required to apply to the USCIS for extensions for their visas or leave the country if they are unable to get an extension.

They can then again apply to the US immigration agencies for readmission.

The proposal put forward by the Trump administration would have brought down the limits further for student visas to a maximum of two years. The DHS also reported that those who were in opposition to the time limit were of the view that it would greatly impact the international students, research scholars, as well as foreign journalists.

Academic groups related to higher education were justifiably concerned by the proposed plan to change the student visa policy, which could create an atmosphere of uncertainty among international students, who would need to go through tedious and expensive reapplication processes to be able to continue with their Education in the United States.

A number of noncitizens could be restricted from applying for an extension of stay in the country and getting it approved, thus preventing them from joining their courses.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application.

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.
