ADJUSTED REFUSAL RATE - B-VISAS ONLY  
BY NATIONALITY FISCAL YEAR 2006  
COUNTRY ADJUSTED REFUSAL RATE
1 Negative refusal rates result from more refusals being
overcome in a given year than refusals made in that year. This can occur because applicants who were initially refused in one fiscal year can overcome that refusal and be issued a visa in a subsequent year. For an explanation of how refusal rates are calculated, please see: http://www.travel.state.gov/pdf/refusalratelanguage.pdf
 
2 Does not include Border Crossing Card applications
