Immigration Update - Note About Paper 1-94 Cards
No more paper I-94s. Specifically, CBP plans to automate the Form I-94 issued at air and sea ports of entry. CBP will no longer issue arriving travelers a paper I-94 form. Instead, after scanning the traveler’s passport, CBP will create an electronic I-94 and merely stamp the passport with an admission stamp containing the date of admission, class of admission, and expiration date.
Recommendation: Although CBP will no longer issue a paper I-94, many employers and government agencies, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Social Security Administration, require a paper version of Form I-94 to verify lawful status and employment authorization. Thus, International Faculty and Staff Services recommends that all nonimmigrant travelers to the U.S. ALWAYS retrieve and print out a paper version of their arrival information from www.cbp.gov/I94. The information should be available online within 24 hours after arrival.
