I have got another question, when I got to the boader, on entry in to the US, I had to remind the officer, to take the sealed envelope, also I reminded him that he told me that the charge he told me was 6 dollars but he forgot to take it. He did not ask me if I was bringing any stuff along with me.

I have read several post but still don't know the meaning of an I-94 but I am just guess it is to list the stuff I am immigrating with. So what do I do since I do not have one? Is it thst necessary?

I-94 is the piece of paper the immigration officer asked you to sign with your name and country and has the stamp k1 it says when you were admitted to the country and until when your k1 is valid. Other side of the paper has your A# if you came here on k1 visa.

My I-94 was green, about the size of the back of my passport and valid for 3 months. It has a large red number on it and it likely to be with, if not stapled into your passport. You will have filled out the top half of it and handed it in when you got off the plane.

Sounding familiar yet?! ;)

Hi, Rofa!

You should have an I-94. They should have given you that when you entered an entry-post (or border you mean) here in the States.

It's that small piece of cardboard or paper that was attached or stapled to your passport when you arrived at the entry-post here in the States. It should say I-94 or Departure Record and it is usually stapled right beside your K3 visa. Since you came to the States as K3, it should show there your visa class as K3 and should have a validity of 2 years.

I hope I was able to help clarify with you this matter.

They stamp an expiry date on it at the POE - the time by which you must either have begun the AOS procedure or left the US (either for good or to get an immigrant visa like CR1). Depending on what kind of visa you entered on depends on how long you get! K1's and Visa Waiver get 90 days, B2's 6 months I believe, and Chris says that you should have gotten a date 2 years from when you came into the US :)

Hey, if you don't have an I-94, it can be a real problem...

You usually fill them out onboard the plane. It's a medium-sized piece of white paper (or green for some countries or types of visa). Then at the POE the immigration officer takes the top part of this paper (with your personal info) and gives you a small bottom part - he/she stamps it with smth like "Admitted" and the expiration date. Some I-94's don't expire - like those for student visa holders, but most of them would have an exact expiration date.

You probably have that paper - no one would have let you in without one - but it looks so unofficial that you could have totally forgotten about it or just paid no attention to it at all.

Best of luck to you!

pri,

Not necessarily.

For a K1 entry the I-94 should be marked for 90 days.

For a K3 entry the I-94 is usually marked for 2 years.

For a B2 visa it can be for anywhere from a day or 2 to maximum 6 months, depending on what the plans for the visit are and what the CPB officer is willing to allow. (6 months was typical before 9/11, and maybe it is again, but for a while there it was getting rare).

Some may be open-ended, such some type of student visa.

I-94 is the piece of paper the immigration officer asked you to sign with your name and country and has the stamp k1 it says when you were admitted to the country and until when your k1 is valid. Other side of the paper has your A# if you came here on k1 visa.

it is valid for 6 months
