As of April 30, 2013, United States Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) will no longer issue physical I-94 Arrival / Departure forms. The arrival / departure process will now be electronically automated. Upon arrival in the USA by air or sea, CBP will gather travel information automatically from the artist’s travel records and will enter the artist’s visa classification and departure date electronically.
Note: as advance information is only transmitted for air and sea travelers, CBP will continue to issue paper form I-94 to those entering at land ports (most often meaning Canadians and Mexicans). Read more on Entering the USA in our Visa section.
