  • Please Deliver this Alert Notice to the Appropriate Responsible Company Personnel. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (“CBP”) has announced its intention to electronically automate the Form I-94, starting immediately. In so doing, CBP will eliminate the paper I-94 and instead create an electronic file containing the information typically found on the paper form. Foreign nationals will still receive an admission stamp in their passports, indicating their status, date of admission, and term of admission. Additionally, upon entry, foreign nationals should receive a web address from CBP where they can print their own copy of the automated Form I-94.
