India rejected 53% Pak visa applications in 2016

India rejected nearly 53% of over 33,000 visa applications from Pakistan between January-May this year, according to government data. This has led the Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan, Gautam Bambawale, to enquire about this “drastic increase in rejected visas” from Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi. Notably, 24% and 17% visa applications from Pakistan were denied in 2015 and 2014 respectively.
