How Real is Claim of Improved Visa Approval Rates in India?

Rate this Entry
My friend Kenneth White gets the credit for poking holes in the claim by US consular officials in India of a substantial improvement in the visitor visa approval rates at Indian consular posts. I was told the denial rate was around 25% and told this represented a major improvement. But Kenneth sent me links to date from 2006, 2007, 2008 as well as 2011 and 2012, the most recent years available. The long and short of it is that the approval/denial rate in 2013 is pretty similar to what it's been for many years. In fact, the denial rate was less than 20% back in 2008. Granted, it was 30% in 2011 so last year was an improvement. But hardly the improvement that was represented. F-1 stats are harder to find so I can't report whether that claim is true or not.
