China issues official warning to students hoping to go to US

China issued an official warning on Monday for Chinese students seeking to study in the United States, amid heightened tensions between the two countries. The Ministry of Education urged students and academics to “raise their risk assessment” after an increase in visa delays and denials for those who have applied to study in the US.

“For a period of time now, some Chinese students in the US have faced situations where their visas were restricted, the visa review period was extended, the period of validity was shortened, or [their applications] were rejected,” it said in a statement, relayed by the Chinese state broadcaster CCTV.
