I-94 expiry date (for curiousity sakes)


5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My family is about to enter U.S. on K3/K4 visas, and I am researching info on the next steps to take once they arrive.

My question: How long is the validity of the I-94 (arrival-departure record) from the time of entry?

K-3 / K-4 visa is for 2 years not 90 days. My wife came on k-3 on February 18th 2006 and her 1-94 was stamped to expire on February 17th 2008. Even her k-3 visa in the passport is for two years with multiple entry. Her EAD card also expires on the same date in 2008.

K-1 / K-2 is for 90 days only.
