I am a Canadian who came to the US by flight for visit purposes. I decided to pull up my I-94 number online and it was not showing any results. Thinking my name could be accidentally input in a wrong way, I tried various combinations with no results. After that I called the CBP port of entry office (which was the pre-clearance in Calgary,Canada), after spending sometime on the phone with an CBP officer in Calgary he said he has no record of my current trip to the US. But he does have record of my previous trips.
A few extra details would be, when I went to the kiosk i got a slip that had a "x" mark on it. After which I was sent to a CBP officer and he asked me me generic questions in regards to my trip. He stamped my passport with a 6 month validity and I was sent.
I do have the stamp as a proof of entry and the boarding pass. What steps should I take to resolve this matter, especially because I eventually intended to immigrate to the US, under a spousal sponsorship.
You can visit the local office of the CBP to request that the CBP database be updated to reflect your last entry into the U.S Keep in mind that the CBP stamp issued to you in your last entry is sufficient proof of your lawful entry.
The stamp in your passport is evidence of your lawful admission to the US. You can also contact CBP and ask them to update the on line records.
