Foreign Students under Supervision [Archives:2002/03/Local News]

January 14 2002

Yemeni government has taken a set of measures to curb the flow of Arab students and preachers unless they get permits from the authorities concerned. During its weekly meeting the cabinet approved the draft law which incorporates banning any students from joining government or non-government educational institutions, but under the bilateral education agreements signed between the Yemeni government and their respective countries.
The cabinet also entrusted the relevant ministries to check if all the foreign preachers and students had been duly registered at the authorities concerned. From now on, foreign students interested in studying in Yemen will have to get their governments’ approval in case their countries have no student exchange agreements with Yemen.
