Hello everyone,

 

 

ESTA holders still need the I-94?

 

 

Thanks!

For what? 

At any point in the K1 visa or can I just use the ESTA?

I mean I say this because I've been trying to get my I-94 from their website and it says "no record found for traveler".

All my details are correct and I've tried this multiple times.

I am assuming it might be because I am an ESTA holder...

If you mean does CBP track the arrivals and departures of ESTA holders via the I-94 system, then yes, they do.  I am not sure why you are having trouble obtaining yours.  Maybe their system is updating?

I-94 records are also registered for people who arrive on an ESTA. I-94 records together with passport stamps are good evidence of meeting in the last 2 years, but it's not a rule that you have to provide the I-94 at this point. You will need to provide it with AOS tho, but that's for later concern. See https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/1696/kw/i-94 update for info how to retrieve your I-94 info if it's not found.

The only thing I have when it comes to my entries in the US is my stamps in the passport. Nothing else. I’ve read some people get it while in the plane but the only thing I got from the staff ever was a small paper asking me questions like “do you bring any meat or animal products with you?” this kind of questions and I had to give that to the agent at the POE anyways.

You won't get handed anything at POE, as it is entirely electronic.  Even if a passport does not get stamped, there is still an electronic record of all arrivals and departures.

The paper you get in the plane is just to declare if you have any foods etc in your luggage. The I-94 is electronic. You can acces the records via https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/. If this comes up blank, check the site I posted here earlier to check if you're doing everything right to retrieve it and if so, how to contact CBP
