I-94 card still required?

Timeline

My wife completed the Adjustment of Status (AOS) process back in MAY/JUNE 2008 and was granted a green card.

We cannot remember if we handed over the I-94 card or if it was given back to us - we cannot find it at the moment.

Do we still need this card? We have to file for Removal of Conditions in 2 years - do we need the I-94 for that process?

Also, we plan on doing some traveling next year; does she have to present that card when we re-enter the US.

I have a feeling that the Green Card and passport should be sufficient but I want to be sure.

Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

As soon as you become a green-card holder, the I-94 is no longer needed to be kept in passport.

I-94 is for NON-Immigrants to carry and recording leaving the USA, a green-card holder does not have to record leaving the country they are a permanent resident, so do not need a departure record.

If you have one you can remove it and place it in a scrap book, or discard it.

Also on future re-entries, like US Citizens, green-card holders do not have to fill out an I-94 card when entering the USA.

Time to update profile, You are AOS Approved, NOT K-3 http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...rCP&CODE=01

In most cases they keep I-94 at the interview, They kept mine.

When you have a GC I-94 is no longer necessary. You dont need I-94 for removing conditions process.

All you need to travel is your GC, valid passport and visa, depending on your nationality and where you are going.

Upon return to US, as a PR you don't have to fill out new I-94, you only need to fill out customs declaration form.

Just a side note.... when you apply for Naturalization, you will need to provide the dates and places travelled (outside of the U.S.). So, keep a record somewhere of all the trips taken so you won't be stressed out trying to remember the exact dates at the time of Naturalization.

When does the USCIS take/check the I-94 form.

I have made over 30 round trips to Brazil in the past 3 years out of the Atlanta airport and have not seen Immigration there checking I-94 of an passengers boarding the plane for Brazil, the Airline crew does check your passport for a Visa if you do not have a Brazilian Passport.

Brazil immigration checks on entry and exit and does collect Brazils "I-94" form.

The airline check-in desk person takes it (where you check your luggage), it's not done by immigration.
