New I-94 Process

Earlier this year U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began phasing out the I-94 cards issued to nonimmigrant visitors and implementing a new online version.

Instead of receiving the white or green card stapled to the passport upon entry into the U.S. by sea or air, the CBP is endorsing the passport with an admission stamp that specifies the date of admission, class of admission and admitted until date.

The foreign national is required to visit the CBP website (https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html), to retrieve the Admission (I-94) number.

This is done by entering his or her information as listed on the travel document used to enter the U.S. (e.g., name, date of birth, passport number, date of entry, and class of admission) and printing the page containing evidence of lawful admission and the expiration date of the authorized stay.

If the information is incorrect or unavailable, the foreign visitor may need to visit a local CBP office.

Foreign visitors entering by land will continue to be issued  paper I-94 cards upon entry.
