F1 visa NIE validity

F1 visas being issued in India have NIE waiver (if classes start after August 1).

Is this F1 NIE valid for subsequent trips abroad as well, while the travel ban is on?

Yes, valid for multiple entries to the US for 12 month from the visa issue date. No need to separate NIE approval.

Thanks. The H1B mentions the NIE validity in the approval email.
From where does one get to know about the validity of the NIE included within the F1 Visa?
