Since students are gearing up towards coming to the United States, I thought of sharing some important information that you should be knowing. Whenever you enter the United States, an I-94 form gets generated for you. I-94 Form is a way that US Officials keep track of your Arrival and Departure from the USA. All the countries have this Form, in USA it is named as I-94.
I had written a post explaining in detail about what’s I-94. Please click on the following link to view the post: Complete Overview on I-94 form
Steps to Retrieve I-94:
Step 1: First copy the following link and paste it on your Web Browser https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html. You will see the webpage as shown below.
Step 2: Accept the terms and conditions by clicking on Yes at the end of the page as shown in this picture below.
Step 3: You will see a form opened up. You will have to fill in the correct details and there are two options available at the end of the Form.
- Get Most Recent I-94: This would only give you the recent I-94
- Get Travel History: This would give you all the I-94’s
I-94 Information Not Found?
There is always a possibility that even though you enter all your information correctly, there would be an error stating “I-94 Information Not Found” as shown in the pic below.
This happens in a lot of cases. It happened to me. It usually happens if your name is big. My surname is big. The I-94 information is provided by the immigration officer and the officer has to type in all your details. If your name is huge, the officer normally messes it up. If you are facing a problem where your I-94 is not getting generated, please click on the following post where I have explained the steps you need to take in this case.
