The United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has indicated during liaison discussions that they intend to mostly phase out Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record. CBP will instead issue admission stamps in the passports of arriving nonimmigrants. The stamp will include a handwritten notation indicating the status and authorized period of stay, similar to the procedures currently used for travelers under the Visa Waiver Program. While CBP will create an electronic record for arriving nonimmigrants that will presumably be shared with other stakeholders such as the Social Security and state motor vehicle departments, the agency does not anticipate issuing receipts or any other type of documentation upon entry. Nonimmigrants arriving at air and at those sea ports using APIS will no longer receive a paper Form I-94. Nonimmigrants arriving at land posts, unless otherwise exempted, will continue to receive a valid paper Form I-94. Also, certain classes of arriving aliens such as refugees, will continue to be issued a valid Form I-94. It is unclear at this point how this will impact Canadian citizens. We are awaiting the official announcement from CBP. Keep checking our web site for further updates.
