Immigration and Citizenship Data

We receive and adjudicate an average of 7 million petitions and applications annually.* These petitions and applications typically allow foreign nationals to stay in United States as lawful permanent residents (LPR) or immigrants, to stay temporarily to work as nonimmigrants, or to obtain U.S. citizenship.
