Table 27. Nonimmigrant Admissions (I-94 Only) by Region and Country of Residence: Fiscal Years 2017 to 2019

The 2019 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics is a compendium of tables that provide data on foreign nationals who are granted lawful permanent residence (i.e., immigrants who receive a “green card”), admitted as temporary nonimmigrants, granted asylum or refugee status, or are naturalized. The Yearbook also presents data on immigration enforcement actions, including apprehensions and arrests, removals, and returns.

1 Beginning in 2010 the number of I-94 nonimmigrant admissions greatly exceeds totals reported in previous years due to a more complete count of land admissions.
2 Includes countries and territories/dependencies.
3 The number of I-94 nonimmigrant admissions beginning in 2013 greatly exceeds totals reported in previous years due to a more complete count of Canadian air and sea admissions.
4 United States includes nonimmigrants who self-report that they reside in the United States.
Notes: Admissions represent counts of events (i.e., arrivals) not unique individuals. Multiple entries of an individual on the same day are counted as one admission. The majority of short-term admissions from Canada and Mexico are excluded.
