Hey all!

Has this happen to one of you:

I recently travelled from the USA to Toronto ( I have my green card and it is the first time I travelled outside the USA since I came to the USA on a K1-VIsa.)

But the thing is, when I arrived in Toronto, I noticed that nobody took out the I-94 departure record which was stapled to one of my passport pages when I entered the USA in 2005.

Aren't they suppose to take it out when you leave the USA????

Damn... am I in trouble now???

Beee :blink:

If you are applying to extend your stay in the United States or change your immigration status, you will be asked to give USCIS your Form I-94.

I suspect that you should have turned that form in at AOS interview.

I also found this:

It is the applicant’s responsibility to make sure the transportation carriers collect the applicant’s departure portion of the Form I-94. If an applicant departs the United States by way of land through Canada or Mexico, it is the applicant’s responsibility to return the departure portion of the Form I-94 to CBP prior to his/her departure.

If you had turned the form in at AOS then you would not have it to give to the Customs officer.

I would hold on to it and contact USCIS when you get back to the states, and find out if they want it because they should have taken it at AOS.

Thank you for responding :)

My husband said the same thing and told me not to worry about it since the whole AOS procedure is behind us and I have my green card.

These things always get me a bit jumpy, I guess.

Beee

So, what about those of us who will get a GC without an interview? What do we do with the I-94 departure form in my husband's passport?

Unless they ask for it, keep it as a souvenir:-). If they want it there know where it is:-).

I actually sent my original I-94 in with my AOS application and kept the copies so am not faced with that situation.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
