Travel history/proof

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm starting to prepare my N-400 application so it's ready to go once I receive my 10 year GC, hopefully this Summer! *fingers crossed*

 

I have a question in regards to the travel history; I have had 2 trips outside of the U.S. since marrying my U.S. spouse, these lasting a combined 32 days. Do I need to document this even though it was less than 6 months and how can I document it? Unfortunately this is the only part of the application I was unaware of, otherwise I would have saved my plane tickets.

 

I went to the I-94 site and no travel history would come up for me even though I have used my passport (combined with GC) going through the airports. I have entry stamps from the U.S. in my passport for my return on both occasions however there's no entry/exit stamps from my home country since I only traveled there with a passport from said country, so that's really only a one-sided piece of proof. Should I still submit it? What have you seen others do?

 

Thank you for the help in advance!

Yes, you need to mention any travel of 1 day or more outside the US in your application. You don't need to submit any documentation for it though.  If you can't find the info on I-94 website, call or email them (Your port of entry I-94 department at the airport where you exited and entered).

Thank you for your reply. You're saying I don't have to submit documentation? I'm of course mentioning my trips in the application itself.

 

I checked the I94 website and NO information for me is coming up within the past 5 years. It's also saying that people with GC won't show up? I guess I can call the airport, I just remember the hassle years ago when I arrived and needed to retrieve my I94. Would the i94 show me leaving the country though? Because that's essentially the information I'm in need of. I checked my email and I only have plan ticket confirmation for my most recent trip 🙄

That is not true , I'm green card holder and I just printed my travel history using https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home#section , under 'Need A history of Your Arrivals & Departures' then I entered my information including the passport number.

I had emailed the I-94 department at my local airport once and they also said that info for green card holders won't show up. However, my spouse is a greencard holder and it shows history for her as she had an non-immigrant status here earlier.

I have the same problem.  I know it used to work in the past because I was able to retrieve it.  Today it says I have no history.  I hope someone who has experience with this problem sees your post and is able to offer help.  Thanks for posting.

Hello guys,

I am confused, too. My I-94 shows my record accurately. But I do not know what info I need to write. I came to US almost five years ago as a tourist, for just one day. Months later, I returned as a fiancee and became a resident, I just left US, by land, for a couple of hours (as a resident) so I think that is why that trip does not appear.

But, the form ask for "leaving US date and returning date" I never "left US"  I "arrived" as a tourist and then I "returned" to my country.

Has anyone having this issue?

Thank you!

They want to know how many trips outside the US (lasting 24 hours or more) you've been on since getting married

Yea same here, I was able to retrieve the I94 from when I arrived on my K1 visa however only after speaking to an officer at the airport because they had noted my birth year wrong 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

But if you used your passport going through wouldn't it show up? I'm so confused how I'm going to show proof of my two trips without the I94... I really wish I had known about this requirement from the start

This is from the USCIS website, their document checklist for the N-400 application... So I don't need to submit proof if my trip was less than 6 months? Other than of course note the dates within the form itself.

As I already said, no proof is needed to be submitted for travel history but you still need to mention the dates. The screenshot above is a completely different thing....

How's that a completely different thing? This screenshot is in relation to the travel question on the application. I'm just making sure that I don't need to provide proof... and I know I need to mention the dates lol I've stated that of course they've been added, my question is not whether to add the information but whether I need to submit proof
