Submit Comments to Oppose Fixed Time Period J-1 Visas
Action Alert
The Department of Homeland Security issued a Proposed Rulemaking on September 25, 2020 to establish a fixed term for student visas of no more than four years.  In some cases, students may have to reapply for their visas every two years, depending on their country of origin. Read a summary here.

If finalized without change, the proposed rule would constitute the largest changes to regulation of international students and scholars in 20 years.

JNCL-NCLIS urges you to take action and submit your comments in opposition of this rule. 

For additional guidance on submitting comments, click here.
