AGENCY: ACTION: Notice. This notice announces that the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) is suspending certain regulatory requirements for F–1 nonimmigrant students whose country of citizenship is Burma, regardless of country of birth (or individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Burma), 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 these Burmese students 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 their F–1 nonimmigrant student status. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (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 nonimmigrant student satisfies the minimum course load requirement described in this notice.

The Secretary is exercising authority under 8 CFR 214.2(f)(9) to temporarily suspend the applicability of certain requirements governing on-campus and off-campus employment for F–1 nonimmigrant students whose country of citizenship is Burma regardless of country of birth (or individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Burma), who are present in the United States in lawful F–1 nonimmigrant student status on the date of publication of this notice, and who are experiencing severe economic hardship as a direct result of current crisis in Burma. Effective with this publication, suspension of the employment limitations is available through May 25, 2024, for those who are in lawful F–1 nonimmigrant status on the date of publication of this notice. DHS will deem an F–1 nonimmigrant student granted employment authorization through 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 a citizen of Burma regardless of country of birth (or an individual having no nationality who last habitually resided in Burma); (2) Were lawfully present in the United States in F–1 nonimmigrant status under section 101(a)(15)(F)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(F)(i), on the date of publication of this notice; (3) Are enrolled in an academic institution that is Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-certified for 1 Because the suspension of requirements under this notice 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 effective 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 May 25, 2024, provided the student satisfies the minimum course load requirements in this notice. DHS also considers students who engage in online coursework pursuant to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID–19) guidance for nonimmigrant students to be in compliance with regulations while such guidance remains in effect.
