I recall stats from IETF 71 (which may be out of date). I believe at
that time, 48% of attendees were from the U.S. Next was Japan with
then China with 5.7%. If I recall correctly, this was a good number
attendees from China, but I do not know how that compared to IETF 72
to IETF 73. Is the visa issue for visitors from all countries
the U.S., or is this specific to Chinese citizens coming to the U.S.
The US offers a large number in the Visa Waiver program:
Which is basically EU + Japan + australia,
all these countries are developed countries.
IETFers from developing countries are not easy to get a visa to USA.
Plus Canada under a different category.
I would bet (but have no evidence) that the visa problem is almost
specifically a chinese issue.
