The report outlines the significant economic contributions that stem from international education (in 2022, U.S. exports of education-related travel totaled $37.68 billion, a 17% increase from the year prior) and five novel approaches to promoting education and exchange opportunities in the U.S.

A new SEVIS by the Numbers report shows that there were 276,723 active J-1 exchange visitors came to the U.S. in 2022, an increase of 15% from the previous year’s figure of 240,479. This report from the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) also highlights other key data illustrating information and trends on F and M international students studying in the United States.
