Foreign travelers can access their I-94 electronic form through the website that CBP has set up for this purpose: www.cbp.gov/I94. Travelers who have received an I-94 electronic form can log in to the website with credentials and print a copy of the I-94 electronic form. To access Form I-94 from the website, the traveler must enter their passport information. Therefore, without access to the traveler`s passport, a third party cannot access Form I-94 from the website. The printing of the website functionally corresponds to the departures part of the paper form and contains the same information as the departures part of the paper form. CBP will continue to stamp the traveller`s passport at the time of inspection and any admission or probation and stamp the class of admission or probation and the duration of admission or probation. CBP distributes a tear sheet to each alien who receives an electronic I-94 form at the time of inspection with information on the website and procedures for obtaining a form for the alien upon arrival in the United States. c) The terms “issuance” and “issued” include, but are not limited to, the creation of an electronic record of the receipt or arrival/exit of DHS following an inspection by an immigration officer. Before studying in the United States, there are certain forms that you should receive and keep while in the country. An important form is Form I-94, “Arrival/Departure Record.” It indicates the conditions of your admission, including your legal status, the length of your stay and the estimated date of departure.
In addition to the manifest information for each person, the air or sea carrier must also provide flight or travel information. The flight or travel information that the air or sea carrier must provide and that is relevant to Form I-94 is the carrier, flight number, and place of departure. This document was published in the Federal Register. Use the linked PDF in the sidebar of the document for the official electronic format. b) The terms “completed”, “fully executed” and “completed and signed” include, but are not limited to, the fact that DHS completes its collection of information in its electronic check-in or arrival/departure protocol. You will receive an I-94 form upon arrival in the United States. You must present your passport and approved visa to the CBP officer at your port of entry. CBP Officer: Receiving an I-94 travel record is just the beginning of your immigration journey. Boundless can determine if you`re eligible for a green card or citizenship, help you plan your next steps, and explain any different forms you`ll come across.

Form I-94 was introduced prior to technological advances and the implementation of security measures that allow CBP to electronically collect information in advance about passenger arrivals and departures. For aliens entering or leaving the United States by air or sea, data elements collected on Form I-94 paper duplicate information collected by CBP through other mechanisms. As explained in this section (including Table 1), CBP collects this information from APIS, visa information, and information provided to CBP at the time of inspection. Upon entering the United States at a port of entry, you will receive a Form I-94. International students entering the country through an air or sea port receive an electronic form, while those entering the country through a land port of entry receive a paper I-94 form. The I-94 travel record, officially known as the Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record, is a paper or electronic document issued by a United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer to foreign visitors entering the United States. When travelers need their Form I-94 admission record information to verify their immigration status or employment authorization, they are encouraged to obtain their I-94 number from the I-94 website or through the CBP One™ mobile app. When leaving the United States, travellers who have issued a paper Form I-94 must submit it to the commercial airline, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) or CBP at the time of departure. If you received an electronic I-94 upon arrival by air, sea, or land and are departing by land, your departure may not be accurately recorded. An exit will be recorded if you leave by land and re-enter the United States before the expiry date stamped on your passport. If you are not a resident of Canada or Mexico and you receive an electronic Form I-94 and depart by land, but do not re-enter the United States before the expiration date stamped on your passport, you may want to travel to Canada or Mexico with proof of departure. Proof of departure may include, but is not limited to, passport entry stamps, transportation tickets, pay slips and/or other receipts.
A traveller may request an entry stamp from the CBSA when entering Canada or from the Instituto Nacional de Migracion (INM) when entering Mexico.
