On April 2, 2013, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that it is eliminating the paper Form I-94 “Arrival/Departure Record upon arrival to the U.S. by air or sea”. The electronic rollout begins April 30 to allow for the collection of arrival/departure information electronically to streamline the arrival and inspection process for travelers. This is only transmitted for air and sea travelers, CBP will still issue a paper Form I-94 at land border ports of entry. CBP will phase-in the Form I-94 automation at air and sea ports of entry through April and May (See roll-out schedule below). In the mean time for record purposes, we encourage travelers to print out a Form I-94 from www.CBP.gov.
