The I-94 is an official US government record of when you enter and depart the United States. Your I-94 record confirms what immigration status you entered the United States in, and the duration of time you can legally remain in the US.
For F and J visa holders, the amount of time is indicated by the notation “D/S” which means you can legally stay in the US for the duration of your status, which means the duration of your student or scholar program. If you have a date listed on your I-94 record instead of D/S, contact us.
You can only access your I-94 AFTER you enter the US.
After getting your I-94, review all information, and ensure that it is correct. Print out your I-94 record and keep it with your other immigration documents.
The US government issues paper I-94 records at all land borders and in special situations at immigration crossings in airports.
The electronic I-94 record will continue to be available to you while you remain in the US. Once you depart the US, your electronic I-94 record will no longer be available for you to view. Each time you reenter the US, a new electronic I-94 will be created.
