(ANTIGUA NEWS ROOM) — A total of 228 Antiguans overstayed their United States (US) non-immigrant tourism/business B1/B2 visas between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018, according to the US Department of Homeland Security’s Fiscal Year 2018 Entry/Exit Overstay Report.

For that period, 14,508 Antiguans were granted entry to the US and were expected to leave during that time.

However, the Report stated that it has no departure records for 202 Antiguans — now classified as suspected in-country overstays.

Twenty-six Antiguans left the US after their authorised period of admission expired. This is classified as out-of-country overstays, according to the report.

Antigua has a total overstay rate of 1.57 per cent and a suspected in-country overstay rate of 1.39 per cent, based on those figures.
