An Electronic I-94: A Brief Explanation


An I-94 is essentially an immigrant’s recorded entry and exit of the United States. The I-94 is also sometimes called an Arrival-Departure Record. In the event Customs and Border Protection (CBP) does not stamp an immigrant’s passport or provide an I-94 card, the immigrant will likely be able to find their I-94 in its electronic format. There are some instances where CBP will only perform an electronic I-94, due to the form of transportation and as a means to streamline admission into the United States.

The immigrant will need the following to access their record:

  1. Last Name
  2. First Name
  3. Date of Birth
  4. Passport Number
  5. Passport’s Country of Issuance

The electronic I-94 may be accessed at the following address:
