Immigration Updates

I-94 Automation

In order to increase efficiency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has autmoated the Form I-94 at the air and sea ports of entry.  The paper I-94 will no longer be provided to a traveler upon arrival, except in limited circumstances.  The traveler will be provided with a CPB admission stamp on their travel document.  If a traveler needs a copy of their I-94 for verification of alien registration, immigration status or employment authorization it can be obtained from www.cpb.gov/I94.

Other helpful information can be found in the I-94 Quick Reference Guide and I-94 Fact Sheet.
