  • I-94 form Guide

    The purpose of Form I-94/I-94W is to record the arrival and departure information of all visitors to the United States. Most visitors to the United States need to apply for a visa before entering the U.S., unless if the person is a citizen of one of the 27 visa waiver countries and has a machine-readable passport. Citizens of visa waiver countries can enter the U.S. for up to 90-day visa-free. Regardless of whether the visitor is entering the United States under the Visa Waiver Program, or if he/she has a visa, all visitors must complete either Form I-94 (white) or Form I-94W (green).

    I-94 visa form when entering the USA

    As of April 30, 2013, the US immigration authorities have amended the regulations for issuing and completing the I-94 Arrival / Departure Record for the United States. Currently, Form I-94 is only available in electronic form to anyone crossing the US border.

    Electronic version of the I-94 form

    The electronic entry form I-94 is valid for all persons crossing the US border by sea or air. Instead of the current i-94 paper form, which we filled out on the plane, we will only receive an additional stamp at passport control (in the USA). The stamp will contain a date informing us of the length of the US entry visa received.

    Form I-94, departure from the USA

    People leaving the United States who have a stamp in their passport with the date of leaving the territory of the United States, “the so-called electronic version of I-94 ”do not need to take any steps to register their departure from the USA at passport control.
    If you have a paper I-94 form, you must still remember to return the form to an airline or U.S Custom Protection employee before leaving the US.

    Questions from traveling to the USA:
    I cannot print the I-94 form. My data is not in the system! Does this mean that my trip has not been recorded in the system and that I will have problems with my next trip to the USA?

    A lot of people ask me why, after returning to my country, they cannot find their data on the website and thus cannot print the form. What do you have to do in this case?
    According to information provided by the US Immigration Office, people who left the US will not have access to the electronic version of I-94. The form will be available for printing or viewing only during your stay in the USA.
    So, if you want to check your online form after leaving the US and it doesn’t appear, please don’t panic. You have certainly been recorded in the system as people who left the territory of the United States.

    The entry clearly says about it:
    “A traveler will have access to their most recent admission record on the I-94 website until departure from the United States. An admission record will no longer be available to the traveler on the website once he or she departs the United States. The record will remain available to the traveler for the duration a traveler remains in the United States. ”



    What is the difference between Form I-94 and Form I-94W?

    Form I-94 (white): It is issued to visitors who hold a valid U.S. visa, such as B-1, B-2, F-1, H-1B, etc. Form I-94W (green): Is issued to visitors who enter the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program. The “W” stands for “Waiver”. This means that you waive your rights to review or appeal any decision regarding admissibility in the United States, and prevents you (in most cases) from extending your stay in the United States or changing immigration status. Normally this is not a problem, but it is important to be aware of in case on possibly changing status after you enter the United States.

    Form I-94 and Form I-94W consist of two parts:
    Arrival Record: The top part of the form is kept by the immigration officer upon arrival
