In an effort to streamline the I-94 process, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced that travelers may apply for an I-94 prior to their arrival at a land port of entry. In order to expedite the entry process, travelers can apply online, up to seven (7) days prior to entry. The application fee is $6 application.
After submitting travel and biographical information, travelers will receive a provision I-94 card. At the land port of entry, travelers must present themselves within 7 days of filing the application, and submit any information requested by the CBP officer. Travelers will need to reapply for an I-94 number if they do not enter within 7 days.
Previously, travelers who entered by land would receive a paper I-94 card. For more information regarding the online I-94 program, please visit CBP’s website.
