Visa denials spike, casting a shadow on an international-enrollment rebound

More than one in three applications for U.S. student visas was denied in 2022, according to data released by the U.S. Department of State.

The 35-percent rejection rate for F-1, or student, visas is both an uptick from 2021, when 20 percent of such applications were denied, and the pre-pandemic year of 2019, when the denial rate was 25 percent. It’s also more than double the rate of rejections, 14 percent, for all other nonimmigrant visas in the last fiscal year, which ran from October 2021 to September 2022.
