In order to increase efficiency U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has automated Form I-94 at air and sea ports of entry. The paper form will no longer be provided to a traveler upon arrival at the airport. Students and scholars arriving to the U.S. by land will continue to fill out paper I-94 forms.
Instead of the current I-94 paper form, you will receive an admission stamp in your passport which will include your:
1. Date of entry,
2. Class of admission (F-1, J-1, H1b, etc.),
3. Port of entry,
4. Status expiration date (D/S for F-1/F-1, J-1/J-2)
CBP will continue to create an I-94 record for all travelers who require one, but the paper form will be created in an electronic format and not provided to the traveler. If the traveler requires a paper version of the Form i-94, it will be available at www.cbp.gov/I94
This paper version may be requested by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Social Security Administration, Commission of Motor Vehicles, and other agencies as evidence of your lawful admission to the U.S.
