Please review the information contained in the links below for additional information:
When you enter the United States your record of admission will be recorded electronically. After entering the US, you can go to www.cbp.gov/I94 to produce a printed version of your electronic I-94 admission. You will still need the printed version when dealing with other agencies in the United States, such as the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, the Social Security Administration, and when completing employment documents such as E-Verify, and the I-9 system.
If you have any questions, please review the CBP website at www.cbp.gov/I94. If you cannot find the answer to your questions on this government website, please email our office at email@example.com
