U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Rolls Out New Entry Documentation System.

Those of you that have ever entered the U.S. on a non-immigrant visa remember that you were a given that little white card that went inside your passport and was the paper proof that you entered the country legally, and you had to surrender the card to the airline or border patrol when you left the country.  Those days are soon over as the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol rolls out an electronic process that will substitute the old I-94 card.  Starting this month, those arriving by sea or air, will not be given an I-94 card.  The information will be entered by a CBP agent electronically.  If you need the information later, you can access it online at CBP.gov/I94. The implementation of this new program will begin on April 30, 2013, and will take a couple of months to get established at all ports of entry. In the meantime, if you still get the paper I-94, do not discard it. More information about the new process is available online at CBP’s official website.
