where to get I-94 form ?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, i just want to know if they give me the I-94 at POE and i fill it there or do i have to have it before i get to the U.S? and apart from that all i need to take with me to the U.S are my passport and the sealed envelope, right? or is there any other forms?

On my case there is a counter for all kind of forms and fill it out there before going to the immigration officer.

your passport and the visa packet are the most important things that you have to have with you when leaving. the rest, will be up to you.

they said the I 94 was handed to them in the plane. But i got mine in the POE. they immigration officer asked me if i filled out an I -94 and i said no, so he gave me the form.

You will fill out the I-94 at your POE, the first entry point into the United States. A USCIS Officer will take your sealed envelope and process you into the US Immigrations system. They will document your I-94 and staple it in your passport. You then continue on with your journey to your final destination in the U.S.

Often they hand them out on the airplane - sometimes they don't. Either way, the I-94 will be stapled in your passport before you leave the airport, so there is no way to forget it. It's just a small white slip of paper.

My husband was given his on the plane. You shouldn't have to worry about anything other than your passport and sealed envelope.

Filled mine at the airport then they stamped it to my passport. Great because I sure as heck would have lost it years ago. Only needs basic bio data IIRC. It may be different now.

Thank you guys, i'm still waiting but getting more anxious and want to make sure i know what to do next.

I have just seen a sample of the I-94,

Question # 8 : country where you live

does it mean where i have been living before i come to the states ?

i've been in the uk for the last 2 years , do i write down United Kingdom or my country of citizenship ?

Question # 12 : Address while in the United States ( number and street )

Question # 13 : City and state

so hopefully we are going to get married in Florida and assuming that my POE will be Florida as well and we might stay there after marriage , but on the packet 3 forms before the interview the address was Indiana, we never mentioned Florida on any of the previous forms, ( so i think the address mentioned in the sealed packet is Indiana)

my question is What should i say, Indiana or Florida address , in case i chose Florida, is it going to be a problem since the address will not be identical to the one in the sealed packet? will the immigration office at the airport question that?

#8 Country where you live. Complete with City, and State/Province

12# Tthe one in which you will be living at; so the one in Indiana.

thank you, but do you think it's going to be a problem if i say Florida, and in case i say Indiana does it mean we have to attend our AOS interview in Indiana or not necessairy?

to be clear, can we still have our AOS interview in FLorida even though i put my address as Indiana on the I-94 ?

Yes. If you have an AOS interview, your local office will be based upon the address used when filling out your I-485 and G-325A.
