|Members of the Order from Ireland were assigned to the United States of America in 1796, and served briefly in India after 1832.
The Order made its way from Ireland to Australia in 1838, and from the Philippines re-entered China in 1879.
(They had been there previously from 1680 to the expulsion of foreign Christians in 1708).
The total number of Augustinians in 1900, however, was less than 2,000.
This was the lowest number of members since the earliest years of the Order.
 1881-1990: difficult re-establishment and crisis following the lack of vocations
The final years of the 18th century probably saw the lowest point in the prospects of the Order.
The organisation of the Order became increasingly international.
Today, the Order is present in Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Poland, the Czech Republic, England, Scotland, Ireland, Malta, Algeria, Nigeria, in the Congo, Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Philippines, Australia, Japan, South Korea, India, Indonesia, United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, Argentina, Panama, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay, Chile, Cuba and Peru.

It was always a fervent hope of the Order to establish itself in the area where Augustine had been born and had served the church.
After many efforts that did not come to anything, members of the Maltese Province moved to Algeria in 1933, and are still there.
