Was not given an I 194 at POE

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I entered USA through LAX. The CO put a stamp in the passport with the date of expiry etc, but did not give me an I 194. When I went to get my SSN they asked if I had an I 194, I said no and they accepted the stamp in the passport. Is this a new procedure? I was a little to hesitant to ask the CO at LAX if he should be giving me something, now I wonder if I should have. Anyone got any clues? How important is the card when applying for AOS?

It is very important for AOS. You need it. Find Los Angeles on the list from the link below, or whichever CBP inspection station is nearest to you, contact them and let them know you were not given an I-94. You should be able to go there during their business hours with your passport and get one.
