CBP PUBLISHES INTERIM FINAL RULE FOR AUTOMATED, “PAPERLESS” FORM I-94 CARDS

On Wednesday, March 27th, U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register the much-anticipated Interim Final Rule moving to automated, "paperless" Form I-94 card issuance. The rule, which will go into effect April 26, 2013, expands the definition of “Form I-94” to include an electronic format.

For decades, a paper Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record card has been issued to foreign nationals entering the United States in order to document the classification of admission and the duration of authorized stay in the United States. By expanding the definition of "Form I-94" to include an electronic format, CBP is now able to collect Form I-94 data and “issue” the Form I-94 in an automated, electronic process.
