On or about April of this year, the U.S. Custom and Border Protection (“CBP”) stopped issuing paper I-94 cards for foreign nationals entering the U.S. . Nonetheless, the I-94 admission record is still critical as it proves the foreigner was inspected at the port of entry, his or hers authorized status and period of stay. The I-94 is also essential to apply for any benefit such as: driving license, change of status or extension of status.
Although the I-94 card is no longer provided to the foreigner as he/she enters the country, the I-94 is retrievable online the CBP webpage. The foreigner will need provide his or her name, date of birth, passport number, country of citizenship, date of entry and class of admission.
According to CBP “ A traveler will have access to their most recent admission record on the I-94 website until departure from the United States”. Please note that "the availability of the record does not convey legal authority to remain in the United States outside of the terms and conditions of admission.”
