Another obstacle for international students in the U.S.

Creating more barriers for international student enrollment in U.S. higher education institutions, the U.S. government has proposed to increase fees for individual student visa processing. Universities/colleges will also see the fee for initial certification doubled and new fees for recertification levied if the proposed changes are approved.

The rationale for the increases is that the fees have not been changed since 2008 and that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will be underfunded by 68.9 million dollars in 2019 if the fees are not increased.
