The End of the Paper I-94 Card

Many nonimmigrants arriving at U.S. air and seaports will soon no longer receive a paper I-94 card. These travelers will only be issued a stamp in their passport and CBP will create an electronic record for arriving nonimmigrants. Most of those arriving at a land border will continue to receive a paper I-94 card. These changes are in intended to reduce costs and errors and expedite processing. This change will impact many areas including: employers’ Form I-9 verification, issuance of social security and driver’s licenses, USCIS’ extensions and changes of status, among others.  We will follow this transition and provide updates.
