0 94

The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) is pleased to learn of the administration’s decision to walk back a new policy that would have required international students taking classes exclusively online courses in the fall 2020 semester to transfer or leave the country.

Alexandria, Va., USA  The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) strongly condemns the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) modifications to temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online classes during the fall 2020 semester, announced on July 6, 2020. Among the modifications is that nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating online may not remain in the United States.

International and American Associations for Dental Research Statement on Presidential Proclamation Suspending Visa Programs

0 196

June 24, 2020, Alexandria, Va., USA - The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) are disappointed by the administration’s June 22 Proclamation Suspending Entry of Aliens Who Present a Risk to the U.S. Labor Market Following the Coronavirus Outbreak that suspends the entry of certain foreign workers into the United States. 

While the proclamation is intended to temporarily block foreign workers entering the United States on H-1B, H-2B, J and L visas, the consequences of such a move will be long-lasting. Not only will this decision affect the relationship between the United States and our partners abroad, but it will also have a negative impact on American research and innovation and therein, the U.S. economy.
