UM: Visa Rules

The Detroit News reports on the impact of stricter visa rules for students, workers and travelers following the attempted terrorist attack on Flight 253. Since 9/11, UM’s international students have already been subject to intense scrutiny to get visas – the article quotes John E. Greisberger, director of UM’s International Center: “We have seen delays over the past few years, but not as bad as right after 9/11. The slowdown is caused by background checks that are done by State Department staff in Washington.” [Source]
