The Ministry of Interior has issued a statement for Saudis seeking entry visas to the United States. In the statement, the Ministry urges visa applicants to familiarize themselves with US immigration rules in order to prevent a delay in obtaining student visas, and warns that failure to obey immigration rules may lead to a delay in admission, denial of visa or possible deportation from the US.
The Ministry cautioned prospective students that they may not change a visitors’ visa (B1-B2) to a student visa after arriving in the US, and that they must notify the appropriate US immigration authorities when moving from the university that provided them with the original I-20. It also cautioned students that they must register for and attend the required minimum credit hours.
