Form I-94 arrival-departure record for U.S. visitors
Forms I-94 and I-94W (for nonimmigrants with a visa waiver) record the arrival and departure dates of people visiting the U.S.
Who needs an I-94 form
Everyone entering the U.S. needs an I-94 or I-94W form except:
- American citizens
- Returning resident aliens
- Non-U.S. citizens with immigrant visas
- Most Canadian citizens who are visiting or in transit
How to apply for or see your current Form I-94
- See your most recent I-94 form and print it, in case you need your record of legal admission to the U.S. The CBP One app also allows you to have a digital version of your I-94 on your phone
- Request an I-94 if you are traveling by land. You can apply for an I-94 and pay the $6 fee in advance, to save time at the land port of entry. (If you are traveling by air or sea, you will receive an I-94 at your port of entry during the admission process.)
- Get a history of your arrivals and departures from the U.S. for the last 10 years
- Find out how long you are legally allowed to stay in the US
- Read frequently asked questions about the I-94
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sends visitors email reminders about their remaining time in the U.S. In addition, it sends notifications to travelers who may have exceeded their admission period.
I-94W for travelers traveling under the Visa Waiver Program
Citizens of Visa Waiver Program countries must have an approved and current authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) to apply for their I-94W in advance through the CBP One app or the Form I-94 web page.
