Cameroonian F-1 Students May Apply for Employment Authorization

Posted on by

Due to the ongoing crises in Cameroon, DHS is suspending certain requirements for F-1 status holders from Cameroon. This includes anyone with Cameroonian citizenship regardless of their country of birth. Any Cameroonian F-1 students who are facing severe economic hardship due the crises in Cameroon may request employment authorization, work an increased number of hours, and decrease their course load while still maintaining F-1 status. Under this rule, Cameroonian F-1 students who receive employment authorization will still be considered to be “engaged in a full course of study” for the F-1 requirements. This rule will be in effect until December 7, 2023.
