March 2016 and April 2016 I-94 Arrivals Data Revised in November 2016: In reviewing the preliminary March and April 2016 I-94 arrivals data, it was noticed that there was an unusual decline in I-94 records for residents of overseas countries who traveled to Guam and Saipan. This trend started in March 2016 because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Customs and Border Protection did not include several classes of admission that had previously been a part of the I-94 monthly arrivals dataset. This omission predominately affecting overseas travel from selected Asian countries and Russia to Guam and Saipan. Approximately 36,000 records were added to the March and April totals. Please note that it is our objective to report the monthly I-94 arrivals data in a consistent and accurate format to support the informational needs of the travel industry.
July 2016 I-94 Arrivals Data Revised in March 2017: The preliminary July 2016 I-94 arrivals data were revised after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Customs and Border Protection corrected a coding problem that affected non-resident arrivals to the United States from Hong Kong, the People's Republic of China (excluding Hong Kong), Turkey, and Turkmenistan. No changes were found for country of citizenship, port of customs, class of admission (visa type), mode of arrival, or date of arrival. Departure dates were changed on only five records (insignificant).
