To begin with, students planning to study in the USA need not worry about this order.
President Donald Trump, on Wednesday, April 22, signed an executive order temporarily suspending immigration (new green cards). He said that he took this action to protect American jobs amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
Since then, there has been a lot of panic and confusion among Indian students about the implications of the order on student visas and work permits.
But as a matter of fact, the order applies only to those seeking permanent residence (green card) in the United States. It has been issued only for 60 days, at which point it will be re-evaluated and potentially extended.
