U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is Discontinuing Passport Entry Stamps, Transitioning to Online I-94 Arrival/Departure Records Only; Mistakes Are Common – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has automated the I-94 process for most nonimmigrants arriving by air and sea. This means that in many cases, foreign nationals no longer receive an entry stamp in their passports at ports of entry documenting their arrival. Earlier this year, CBP also announced that it is issuing electronic I-94s at land ports of entry.
Akula & Associates strongly advise foreign nationals to check their electronic I-94 within 24 hours of entry due to possible mistakes from CBP. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys if you or someone you know may need help with their I-94 or detailed information on the new process.
