Structural Changes Likely In US Student Visa Policy
The government of United States is under pressure to initiate substantial reforms in the US student visa policy as cases of notorious recruiters for universities rise alarmingly.
The Way Out:While some universities like the Pittsburg (Kansas) State University and Missouri Southern State University has announced their plans to drop using any shady recruiting agencies voluntarily others are considering options to have their own recruiting offices in bigger nations like China and India.
While universities have successfully woven in changes in their recruitment process, there are calls from various sources for the government to step in and clean the process for good. Already there have been reports that the U.S. State Department is considering a proposal to limit the participation of J-1 student visa sponsors at 2011 levels and would not consider new applications from organizations that connect the students with employers. While the proposal is to tighten regulation of the four-month long student visa program, more effective and structural changes in student visa policy of the United States is not ruled out and may happen sooner rather than later.
