I-94 Question

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I fly out on 20th January! I cannot wait.

In regards to the I-94, where do I get this from / when do I get it / who gives it to me? Every time I have been over before I have just been handed a US Customs Declaration Form (6059B) by the flight attendants on the plane.

Once I do have the form and it's been looked at, it gets stapled into my passport, right?

It will be handed to you by the flight attendants on board your flight, you will need the white I-94. Fill it out and imigration will stamp it and staple it in your passport.

Safe travels! Also, once you get to the U.S., be sure to make front and back copies of the I-94 and store them in a safe place. You'll need them for AOS, but it's good to have extras as back-up.

And, if they don't have them,there are stacks on a table when you get to the area where you get in line for inspection. There is usually several people directing people arriving and you can also ask them.

But if you are a citizen of the VWP country you won't get any I-94, just a stamp in your passport.

I've heard they stopped giving I-94 some time ago.

They stopped giving out the green I94-W to visitors from VWP countries. Because now VWP visitors have to complete an ESTA application electronically BEFORE they fly.

Persons from VWP countries entering on a visa still receive and need to complete the white I94.


Our journey together on this earth has come to an end.

I will see you one day again, my love.

Sorry I forgot the W with the I-94 form. Thanks for correcting me.

So if the person is using VWP to visit the US, not the B2 visa, they don't receive I-94 (but their passport is stamped at the customs), but they need to be ESTA approved before their flight.

They have to be ESTA approved before they board the flight. When they land, they don't receive an I-94W. Their passport is stamped at entry.

lets say the flight attendant thinks yer a brit coming over via vwp - and doesn't give you the I-94 that you need on the plane.

GET ONE in the immigration line - there be empty forms there.

Good Luck !
