New immigration requirements for students in U.S. who are not U.S. citizens



The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) has delayed the date by which universities and colleges who enroll non-U.S. citizens holding non-immigrant visas must decide whether or not they are going to participate in the INS' new Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). The new deadline is 15 February.

The initial deadline was 30 January However, it has been delayed “to accommodate schools and visitors centers that are new users” of the Internet-based SEVIS system, according to a statement released by the INS.
