Other Restrictions

  • On May 29, 2020, a proclamation suspending entry of certain students and researchers from China was announced. However, the new proclamation does not restrict entry of undergraduate students. Likewise, graduate students and researchers are generally exempt unless they have current or past links to "an entity in the PRC that implements or supports the PRC’s 'military-civil fusion strategy'." The entity list is not available but general guidance indicates that impact should be limited.
