Changes to the Issuance of I-94 Form
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is changing U.S. entry procedures at the air and sea ports of entry. CBP will no longer be issuing a hard copy of the I-94 Form. The I-94 is the Arrival/Departure form that international visitors receive when entering the U.S.; which serves as documentation to indicate visa status. Starting in late April, CBP will issue only an admittance stamp in the passport upon entry to the U.S. and will provide instructions on how to print out a copy of the I-94.
International students and scholars will need to visit a website (CBP.gov/I-94) to print a copy of the I-94. Students and scholars will need the print out a copy to provide to the International Center and for other purposes (employment verification, Social Security number application, DMV, etc.).
For more information, please see the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.
