Customs and Border Protection automate Arrival Departure

ADVERTISEMENT

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has begun automating Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record to streamline the admissions process for individuals lawfully visiting the United States. Form I-94 provides international visitors evidence they have been lawfully admitted to the U.S., which is necessary to verify alien registration, immigration status, and employment authorization.

The automation means that affected visitors will no longer need to fill out a paper form when arriving to the U.S. by air or sea. The change became effective April 26 and began being phased in at air and sea ports of entry beginning April 30.

Travelers wanting a hard copy or other evidence of admission will be directed to CBP.gov/I94 to print a copy of the form based on the electronically submitted data, including the I-94 number from the form.

Records of admission will now be generated using traveler information already transmitted through electronic means. This change should decrease paperwork for both the officer and the traveler, CBP said in a statement.
