[FR Doc. 2021–11002 Filed 5–24–21; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 9111–23–P DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY [Docket No. ICEB–2021–0004] RIN 1653–ZA18 Employment Authorization for Burmese F–1 Nonimmigrant Students Experiencing Severe Economic Hardship as a Direct Result of the Current Crisis in Burma (Myanmar) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE); Department of Homeland Security (DHS). AGENCY: This notice announces that the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) has suspended certain regulatory requirements for F–1 nonimmigrant students whose country of citizenship is Burma (regardless of country of birth) and who are experiencing severe economic hardship as a direct result of the current crisis in Burma. The Secretary is taking action to provide relief to Burmese citizens who are lawful F–1 nonimmigrant students so the students may request employment authorization, work an increased number of hours while school is in session, and reduce their course load while continuing to maintain F–1 nonimmigrant student status. DHS will deem an F–1 nonimmigrant student who receives employment authorization by means of this notice to be engaged in a ‘‘full course of study’’ for the duration of the employment authorization, if the nonimmigrant student satisfies the minimum course load requirement described in this notice. SUMMARY: This F–1 Notice is effective May 25, 2021 and will remain in effect until November 25, 2022. DATES: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sharon Snyder, Unit Chief, Policy and Response Unit, Student and Exchange Visitor Program; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, 500 12th Street SW, Stop 5600, Washington, DC 20536– 5600; email: sevp@ice.dhs.gov, telephone: (703) 603–3400. This is not a toll-free number. Program information is available at http://www.ice.gov/sevis/ . SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 May 24, 2021 Jkt 253001 What action is DHS taking under this notice? The Secretary is exercising the authority under 8 CFR 214.2(f)(9) to temporarily suspend the applicability of certain requirements governing oncampus and off-campus employment for F–1 nonimmigrant students whose country of citizenship is Burma (regardless of country of birth), who are present in the United States in lawful F– 1 nonimmigrant student status as of May 25, 2021, and who are experiencing severe economic hardship as a direct result of the current crisis in Burma. Effective with this publication, suspension of the employment limitations is available through November 25, 2022, for those who are in lawful F–1 nonimmigrant status as of May 25, 2021. DHS will deem an F–1 nonimmigrant student granted employment authorization by means of this notice to be engaged in a ‘‘full course of study,’’ for the duration of the employment authorization, if the student satisfies the minimum course load set forth in this notice.1 See 8 CFR 214.2(f)(6)(i)(F). Who is covered by this notice? This notice applies exclusively to F– 1 nonimmigrant students who meet all of the following conditions: (1) Are citizens of Burma, regardless of country of birth; (2) Were lawfully present in the United States in F–1 nonimmigrant status on May 25, 2021, under section 101(a)(15)(F)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(F)(i); (3) Are enrolled in an academic institution that is Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-certified for enrollment of F–1 nonimmigrant students; (4) Are currently maintaining F–1 nonimmigrant status; and (5) Are experiencing severe economic hardship as a direct result of the current crisis in Burma. 1 Because the suspension of requirements applies throughout an academic term during which the suspension is in effect, DHS considers an F–1 nonimmigrant student who engages in a reduced course load or employment (or both) after this notice is issued to be engaging in a ‘‘full course of study,’’ see 8 CFR 214.2(f)(6), and eligible for employment authorization, through the end of any academic term for which such student is matriculated as of November 25, 2022, provided they satisfy the minimum course load requirement in this notice. DHS also considers students who engage in online coursework pursuant to ICE coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID–19) guidance for nonimmigrant students to be in compliance with regulations while such guidance remains in effect. See ICE Guidance and Frequently Asked Questions on COVID–19, available at https://www.ice.gov/ coronavirus [last visited Mar. 2021]. PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This notice applies to F–1 nonimmigrant students engaged in private school (kindergarten through grade 12), public school (grades 9–12), and undergraduate and graduate education. An F–1 nonimmigrant student covered by this notice who transfers to another SEVP-certified academic institution remains eligible for the relief provided by means of this notice. Why is DHS taking this action? As a result of the current crisis in Burma, the Secretary designated Burma for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months, effective May 25, 2021 through November 25, 2022, based on extraordinary and temporary conditions in Burma caused by a February 2021 military coup, which has led to continuing violence, arbitrary detentions, use of lethal violence against peaceful protesters, and the worsening of humanitarian conditions. DHS now is taking action to provide relief to eligible Burmese F–1 nonimmigrant students who are experiencing severe economic hardship as a direct result of the current crisis in Burma. These nonimmigrant students may request employment authorization, work an increased number of hours while school is in session, and reduce their course load while continuing to maintain F–1 nonimmigrant student status. DHS has reviewed conditions in Burma and determined that making employment authorization available for eligible nonimmigrant students is warranted due to conditions in Burma. On February 1, 2021, the Burmese military perpetrated a coup, deposing the democratically elected government. The military is responding to the Burmese people’s peaceful rejection of the coup with brutal repression and violence, resulting in large-scale human rights abuses, including arbitrary detentions and deadly force against unarmed individuals. The coup has triggered a humanitarian crisis, including the disruption of communications and limited access to medical care. The impacts include, among other things, the closure of banks and interruptions of payments and cash withdrawal systems, as well as a reported increase in prices of basic commodities, including food, construction materials and fuel in some areas. Among those in need of humanitarian assistance are over 330,000 people in Burma who remain internally displaced.2 2 United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA) (February 2021) Myanmar: Humanitarian Update No. 4, available at E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1
