Report of the Visa Office

The Report of the Visa Office is an annual report providing statistical information on immigrant and non-immigrant visa issuances by consular offices, as well as information on the use of visa numbers in numerically limited categories.

The Visa Office has a limited supply of older reports. You may ask about the availability of these from the Visa Office.

The Report of the Visa Office does not contain information on these categories:

  • Refugees entering from abroad or asylum-seekers in the United States or
  • Non-numerically controlled visa categories for people in the United States who are adjusting status (getting a green card or becoming a permanent resident) through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Department of Homeland Security (USCIS).
  • The above statistics are available from the DHS Office of Immigration Statistics.
