Dear Sir or Madam,
This email and documentation are to request that CBP correct an error on my I-94 record. I’m sending this email and information after speaking by phone to a CBP representative.
I currently have a valid Nonimmigrant (add your visa category) Visa. After my last admission to the U.S., the immigration officer recorded the validity of my status with “admin until date” (add date from I-94). See attached I-94 record.
However, my current USCIS Approval Notice I-797 is valid until (add date from I-797). See attached approval notice and my Passport ID page.
Please kindly correct my I-94 record to reflect my status validity period.
If you need further information please contact me. I look forward to your kind assistance.
