On June 11, 2021, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) announced the addition of new I-94 features to the CBP One Mobile App for all international travelers who come to the United States.
The CBP One I-94 form feature is a mobile version of CBPâ€™s website and provides a more convenient way for travelers to apply up to seven days before they arrive in the United States. This new feature will give travelers options to check their travel history, see the expiration of the I-94 card, and obtain proof from the CBP One Mobile App.
These new I-94 features are essential for foreign travelers arriving at any port of entry, except U.S. citizens, returning foreign visitors with or without immigrant visas, and most Canadian citizens visiting or transiting through the United States. Many foreign visitors can use this form to adjust their status in the United States or depart on or before the expiration of the I-94 card. For people who need to prove admission in the United States for schools/colleges, government agencies can access their CBP admission record information on the CBP One I-94 App or the I-94 website.
New I-94 CBP One Features Streamline Admission At Ports of Entry
The new I-94 features streamline admission at the port of entry at the land borders because the CBP has announced that they will no longer print I-94 cards to save time for travelers. Travelers coming through air or sea are issued automated I-94s during the admission process at the port of entry. They can also use the app to check their travel history, I-94 expiration date, and obtain proof of their electronic I-94 card.
CBP One App can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play. The cost of applying for an I-94 using the mobile app is USD 6, which is the exact cost of applying on the I-94 website or upon arrival at a land port of entry.
