U.S. To Put Limits on Some Visas for Chinese Citizens

The Trump administration will set limits on Chinese visa applications to help protect American intellectual property, a State Department official said Tuesday, in the latest sign of continued trade tensions with Beijing.

The measures would in some cases cut short the amount of time that a Chinese citizen could stay in the U.S. and would be decided on a case-by-case basis, according to the official, who was granted anonymity to discuss the changes before they were announced. Now, visas issued to Chinese applicants who wish to study or work in the U.S. are typically for the maximum time allowed.
