Hey guys, not sure what happned when I came at JFK but the officer who processed me did not give me an I-94 or finger print me a second time like I have read people did before.... does any one know why? Is this becasue of the automation of the I-94 form thing? He also spoke with other officers about it and seemed confused so I am not sure what is going on.... Can I still file the AOS using the passport stamp alone?

Paper I-94 are going the way of the Do Do bird, and being replaced by an electronic version.

You can get a copy of your I-94 directly from the DHS:

Good luck!

You need an I-94. You need to go to a CBP "deferred inspection site" and get a new one for free because they made a mistake.

They did not make a mistake. Going back to the inspection site will be a waste of time and completely unnecesary.

It doesn't say it applies to a K-1 visa. It says it applies for "foreign travellers" whatever that means. Do you (or anyone) have any information that it applies to all visa classes? K-1 is sort of "special."

You may be on to something here...

OP: to get a quick answer, you can call CBP on the phone and ask them if the electronic I-94 system applies to K-1 visa holders.

It's possible in all the hullabaloo they made a mistake. It happens and it can be fixed by going to a deferred inspection site.

It's also possible that it did go electronic and there is a delay in updating the site.

I was just going though Honolulu Immigration today. My fiancee will come from the Philippines on Thursday. People on the plane who were immigrating were told to fill out a customs form AND I-94 form...but...I overheard some of the immigration officers saying that K-1 visa holders do not fill out an I-94 form on the plane. It is generated for you when you are processed through immigration. Just fill out the blue customs forms. I asked an officer and he confirmed that k-1 visa holders used to have to fill out the form before landing but now it is generated electronically for you.

My fiance entered the US on June 6th and he was not given an I-94 form, I assume because it is now automated. However, when we put his information into the CBP website it says his record is Not Found. Is anyone else having this problem? It is now June 12th, do you know how long it should take to be in the system?
