If F-1 visa holders cannot take their usual full-time, in-person classes, they will need to exit the U.S.A. and return to their home country or transfer to a school that is operating with normal in-person classes. F-1 or M-1 student visas will not be issued or permitted into the country by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Some schools will be implementing a hybrid model that will include in-person as well as online classes. These schools must certify to SEVP, through the Form I-20 and ensure that students meet the minimum requirement of in-person classes.USCIS will furlough over 13,400 employees in 30 days if the Congress doesn't authorize any emergency medical funding asking for $1.2 billion as well as a 10% surcharge on all applications that have yet to be approved. The U.S. Immigration Agency believes it will run out of money due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They also believe that the number of applications will decrease by 61% by the end of the year.
