countries which tended to limit the number of persons who are able to emigrate.
During the period 1939—45 conditions resulting from World War II, made it
difficult for ijersons to emigrate. I>ifficulty in finding transportation was one
of their factors. Under some quotas, as that for (Ireat Britain, Ireland, and
many countries for which there has always been little immigration, there was
insufficient demand for visas on the part of persons desiring to immigrate.

It is regretted that it is not iwssible to attriliute to each of the various factors
referred to their relative effect on the underissuance of the quotas.
Sincerely yours,

Edw^abd S. Maney,
Chief, Visa Division.

1900 COMMISSION ON IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION

Following is a list of oversubscribed quotas and the total registration there-
under as reported by consular offices on August 1, 1952. There is also listed
the year through which quotas were mortgaged under the Displaced Persons Act,
as amended. Considering these mortgages, and based upon the total registra-
tion shown, an estimate has been made of the number of years an applicant now
registering may have to wait before a quota number becomes available for his
use. This figure is strictly theoretical, and cannot under any circumstances
be considered accurate since applicants who may not qualify, those abandoning
intention to emigrate, failure to obtain exit i>ei-mits, and other conditions could
at any time reduce the waiting period for applicants who are able to qualify.

Examples are the German and Norwegian quotas under whicli applicants
registered prior to July 1, 1952, and June 1, 1952, respectively, are now receiving
visas.
