No Income Tax Filing

Are you a nonresident alien for tax purposes 
who earned NO income in 2021?

You must file Tax Form 8843 by June 15, 2022. 

All international students, scholars and their dependents present in the U.S. under F-1, F-2, J-1, or J-2 nonimmigrant status who are nonresidents for tax purposes must file Form 8843 [pdf] "Statement for Exempt Individuals and Individuals with a Medical Condition" even if they received NO income in 2021.

It is a simplified version of the IRS instructions found on pp. 3-4 of the Form 8843.  The IRS also has additional guidance on completing Form 8843 here.

What if I forgot to file my Form 8843 in a previous year? 

Complying with U.S. tax law is part of maintaining your immigration status. You should file the previous year's Form 8843 as soon as possible.
