In One Chart: The country with the most U.S. visa refusals is NOT on Trump’s travel ban list

The residents of some countries have a harder time visiting the U.S. than others.

Cuban citizens had the highest refusal rates (81.9%) among B visitor visa applications for tourist or business purposes last year, according to U.S. Department of State data crunched by the statistics site Statista. They are followed by residents of Afghanistan (73.8%), Mauritania (71.5%), Liberia (70.2%) and Gambia (69.9%). Of the six Muslim-majority countries on Trump’s travel ban — Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Iran, Libya and Sudan — Somalia had the highest rejection rates (around 65%). To acquire these visas, people must prove “nonimmigrant intent,” and show they have both the intent and the funds to return home.
