I-94 as Proof of Lawful Admission and Retrieval of Travel History for Past 5 Years
Beginning May 1, 2014, new enhancements to the automated system have enabled travelers to retrieve their I-94 arrival/departure record for the past 5 years.
Your Most Recent I-94 as Evidence of Your Lawful AdmissionDue to the new automated I-94 system introduced in May 2013, foreign visitors who arrive into the United States by air or sea no longer need to fill out Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record. To prove your legal status in the United States, you may access your arrival/departure record information online. (Link provided under "automated I-94 system below.) You just need to click on "Get Most Recent I-94" at the right corner. You should save all your I-94s for your records. You should also print out your latest I-94, and keep it with your passport. Your I-94 serves as proof of your lawful admission into the United States.
Limited Travel History for the Past 5 Years Now AvailableBeginning May 1, 2014, new enhancements to the automated system have enabled travelers to retrieve their I-94 arrival/departure record for the past 5 years. You may need your travel history if you are trying to obtain benefits with USCIS or another agency. For example, you may need information on your arrivals/departure if you are filing for an intermittent L visa petition, or if you recapture time in an H-1B visa petition. Note, however, that your departure is recorded electronically only when you are departing by air or sea. Also note that the I-94 website will provide the arrival/departure date and port of entry/exit for the passport entered into the query. So if you have a passport that you traveled with during the past 5 years but it is now expired, you will have to perform a separate query.
Correct I-94After your admission into the United States, always make sure that all information on the I-94 is correct. If information on your I-94 is in error, you should request correction at the Deferred Inspection Office closest to your location.
