Denied Entry i94 Question...

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

If a foreign national with a B2 visa is denied entry into the US and sent back to their home country would that entry and exit attempt show up on their i94?

If not is there anyway to find this information out?

I have a distant relative that was supposed to be here two days ago. It was supposed to be his first visit to the US but has a criminal history. We are wondering if he was detained, questioned and denied entry and sent back.

Any information would be helpful, thanks.

There would be no I-94 but there will be a record of his denial of entry. Couldn't you just contact him to see where he is via the same channel through which you found out that he was coming to the US?

Denied entry would be on his file but he will not have an I94. So you wouldn't see if he was denied if you search his I94.

Makes you wonder how he was able to get a visa with criminal history.

Could you not contact any of his family, surely you can reach someone in his household to check if he made it back?

There's a chance, however remote

1. if his criminality was revealed, he was detained and (being) held at a CBP detention cell at the airport, or

2. detained by his country's authorities upon arrival if there was a warrant out for his arrest.

I would first try the airlines, sometimes if you talk with the right person and you have all of the correct information they will tell you if the person was in fact on the flight . Not always but sometimes.

Next contact immigration and tell them you were expecting relative to arrive that never showed and ask for help. But keep in mind depending on the criminal record and whether or not they were attempting to break any US laws upon entry, if they are being detained contacting immigration may cause immigration to link you to what is happening depending of course if they were doing anything wrong or not and the seriousness of that.

If he has a criminal history not disclosed on application fpr visa

then its disclosed at CBP questioning yes he'd be denied entry,

if you've exhausted calling family, him with no avail you can asked

if on that day that name person was denied entry & that you are

very concerned & thinking about filing missing person report

because he did depart his home country for the US. Rhey will

say yea or nay with no additional info.

What if he cleared & now is missing, was he sipposed to be picked up?

Sorry I mean to update this days ago...

All is well, he did indeed have a "red flag" on his visa because of his history. He was detained for 6 hours, questioned and released and had an old girlfriend pick him up that we didn't know about and spent a couple of days with her haha.

He had an assault charge 20 years ago back in his home country for getting into a really bad bar fight when he was younger which left the other guy in pretty bad condition. I a lot of time has passed since then. I don't understand how something he did so long ago still would effect his ability to come into the country now that he's an old man.

Which brings me to my next question... once you have a flag on your visa will you always be detained and question upon every entry? I was told that this was the case and just wanted to verify that information here.

Did he put down the arrest/charge in his application when he apllied for his B2?

His first US visit and the old man disappears with an old gf, and doesn't bother to contact anyone for two days? Sounds like a sly old man...
