Note: In the table aboe, the number of Visa Applications Received is not equal to number of Visas Granted during a month, because the number of In-Scans (Received) in the first few days of the month may not be equal to the number of Out-Scans (Granted) in the last few days of the month. For example, applications received in the last few days of November may be processed in the first few days of December, and applications received in the last few days of December may be processed in the first few days of January. It is also impacted by the number of weekend days in the beginning/end of a month. These differences exist because of the processing times (see table below) for visas.
