This past Monday, April 18th, DHS announced it would be suspending certain requirements for F-1 students from Ukraine and Sudan. The suspensions are for qualifying students experiencing economic hardship due to current circumstances in either Ukraine or Sudan.
The notice temporarily stops certain employment regulations for eligible F-1 students from Ukraine and Sudan until October 19th, 2023. The exceptions are being applied through something called Special Student Relief, (SSR).
SSR was put in place to aid F-1 students experiencing extreme conflict or natural disasters in their home countries.
