Family-Based Immigration Law
Prior to April 2013, Foreign Nationals who entered the United States with a non-immigrant visa were issued a white piece of paper labeled “I-94 form”. This I-94 card shows the port of entry and the date of entry and departure of the foreign national.
After April 2013, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) no longer issues to an individual that white piece of paper reflecting the I-94 arrival/departure record. CBP now stores the arrival/departure information electronically. This allows travelers to retrieve the most recent date of entry into the U.S. through the CBP’s website portal. Once in the CBP website, travelers would obtain their arrival/departure I-94 information for their most recent entry/exist through the “Get Most Recent I-94” link.
As of May 1, 2014, CBP now allows travelers to retrieve their I-94 arrival/departure record as well as the travel history for the last five years. To obtain this, the traveler enters the required name, date of birth, and passport information. Once in the CBP website portal, clicking “Get Travel History” will provide the individual’s five year travel history. CBP I-94 Retrieval.
