It’s all true, really, and has been for more than 15 years

YaleGlobal has a snippet about the hullabaloo over one man’s visa application being rejected at the United States Consulate. He’s quoted as saying,

The scientist told Indian newspapers that his dealing with the U.S.
consulate was "the most degrading experience of my life." Mehta is
president of the International Council for Science, a Paris-based
organization comprising the national scientific academies of a number
of countries.

Reading that triggered memories of my own first experience at the US Embassy in New Delhi, about 15 years ago. I won’t get into details, but suffice to say, it was the same in 1992, so it’s got nothing to do with any recent events, and could only have gotten worse after increased security. I’m just glad that they picked on the President of the ICSU for a change, at least the details have gotten some press.

Funny, this just makes me think of hiring etiquette by design firms and ensuring a consistent brand experience across all channels.
