The USA Homeland Security Department says 1 out of every 100 visitors, and almost 2 out of every 100 international students from India overstayed their visa during the 2017. By percentage, Africans overstay more than South Asians, but fewer Africans are allowed in. India and China topped as visitors: India had more than 1 m total, while more than 4.5 million Chinese residents visited or graduated in the U.S. 1,708 Indians stayed for a while, but eventually left. 12,498 visitors overstayed and still reside in undocumented status. India is the fastest-growing home country for undocumented U.S. residents: an estimated 500,000 – one out of every six – Indian nationals currently reside in the U.S. without requisite immigration papers. Approx. 127,435 students from India graduated and finished optional practical training. Of those, 1,567 stayed for a while but eventually left, while 2,833 (or 3.5 percent) remained in the country unlawfully. No departure records or change in status prior to the end of the authorized admission classifies individuals as “in country overstays”; those leaving some time after visa expiration are “out of country” overstays. Overstayers may not be able to return for 3 to 10 years to the U.S.. Those who do not leave face possible detention and deportation proceedings.
