U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched a new webpage on May 1 that offers nonimmigrant U.S. visitors access to their I-94 arrival/departure record and their arrival/departure history.
The new CBP webpage allows nonimmigrant travelers to access arrival/departure records going back five years from the request date. This electronic travel-history function means that travelers may no longer need to file Freedom of Information Act requests to receive their arrival/departure history, greatly speeding their process. Travelers will have electronic access to the date and port of entry of their arrivals and departures.
When travelers visit the I-94 webpage, they can retrieve their I-94 arrival/departure record number and five-year travel history by entering the required name, date of birth, and passport information.
Clicking on “Get Most Recent I-94” will return the I-94 number, most recent date of entry, class of admission and admit-until date. The information does not reflect changes of status, extension of stay, or adjustments of status granted by U.S. citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Travelers then have the option to print the record.
Clicking on “Get Travel History” will return their five-year travel history based on their I-94 records, which they also can print.
Travelers can also cancel pending Freedom of Information Act requests for travel history information – after they have received the information from the new website – by adding their FOIA Request Number and clicking on “Request FOIA Cancellation” button.
CBP began the online version of Form I-94 in April 2013. The positive public response to that streamlining prompted the agency to offer travel histories online as well.
