Groups Raise Concerns on Chinese Student Visa Limits

Major higher education groups issued statements Wednesday expressing concern about the Trump administration’s reported plans to limit the length of visas for certain Chinese citizens starting June 11. The Associated Press reported Tuesday that the administration intends to limit Chinese graduate students studying certain high-tech fields to one-year visas — instead of the usual five — due to concerns about intellectual property theft. In 2014, the Obama administration extended the terms for visas for Chinese citizens from one year to five years for students and from one to 10 years for tourists.
